Dramatic. Exuberant. Excessive.
Ornate clothing brings drama back to fashion.

Embroidery, needlepoint and tapestry.
Rich fabrics like velvet, leather and silk brocades.
Gold, gold and more gold. Gold hardware, gold embellishments, gold thread.
Ornate patterns that preference symmetry over assymmetry and curves over hard lines.
Creative Thought Starters
From squiggles, squares and straight lines to optical art prints and crazed patterns, the array of choices are dizzying.
An unconventionally modern style of fashionable dress originating in England in the 1960s after the World War 2.The ’60s mod girl was a courageous one because she wasn’t afraid to explore the “bold” side of dressing. Ever since the television show “Mad Men” made its’ debut, Fashionistas everywhere have been influenced by the 1960’s styles worn on the show. For spring 2013, designers were equally influenced by this era; whether from the show or from other sources, the mod look of the 1960’s dominated the runways.
One of the key trends seen emerging this spring is Mod fashion. Monochrome, kitten heels and swing dresses. Although mod fashion originated in the early ’50s as a subculture, it was in the swinging ’60s that it really became a fashion phenomenon. For the first time in the two decades preceding the second world war, teenagers no long had to give their wages to their families and had more disposable income to spend on music, fashion and make-up. For the women of the era, the trend was typically androgynous. Female mods of the era had short haircuts, men’s trousers and shirts that they’d borrowed from their boyfriends. As the decade went by the mini skirts got shorter, the eyelashes got bigger and eye make-up became more doe-eyed.
Since the beginning of fashion as a form of expression rather than function, travel as well as cultural isolation has had its varying effects on the fashion of a people. As the world became smaller, and travel a more accessible luxury, people began to adopt the textiles, shapes, dyes, and cuts of other cultures and meld them into their own. In today's society, the ability to travel (and travel far) is a definitive measure of success, thus travel and escapism have become major influences on clothing trends. Many designers choose to travel in the summer months between the major fashion seasons to glean inspiration for their fall collections.
While collections like this lack a true and sincere representation of another culture's fashion, they at least reference a point in the history of that culture. Accuracy is certainly not the objective, but a respect for another people and another way of life is certainly expressed.
Indian and Moroccan influences with handwork and a color palette of nudes and brights is the trend.
Important materials for this trend include: silk, jacquard, lamé, metallics, and sequins. Patterns are tribal and Indian, with photoreal prints and dye effects also key to the trend.

Technology is shaping today's vision of the future, and the latest generation of futurist fashion designers have embraced engineering in their outfits.
Some designers are using high-tech and high-performance fabric blends with new textures and metallic surfaces to construct more versatile shapes. Patterns that reflect machine components and circuitry have emerged as a trend. Other designers are incorporating machinery into designs and creating mechanized clothing capable of instantly changing shape.
Sustainable fashion uses fabrics and materials such as low-maintenance synthetics, recycled cottons and skins and furs from managed populations of animals that are all produced through environmentally sound practices.
