Fall 2016 RTW: Fur

PETA’s influence on the fashion establishment paled this fall with the abundance of fur seen on the runway.  Animal printed furs, shearlings, mink, fox, as well as faux furries were all represented.

Fall 2016 RTW: Shoulders

Not since the 80’s have we seen such a surge of the big shoulder.  It’s not about “power dressing” this time around. It’s all about the silhouette and a means to give new shape to this generation.

Fall 2016 RTW Trends: 3D

I love these sculptural pieces shown on the runway for Fall 2016 RTW.  Some are actually 3D printed (Iris van Herpen) while others create the effect with volume sewn into the fabric or using an origami pleating (Junya Watanabe, Comme des Garçon, and Noir Kei Ninomiya).

Kepler Space Observatory Throw

Images of our universe and our space program have been an inspiration for my “Heavenly”collection at DQtrs.com.  The latest is the Kepler Space Observatory which has been discovering thousands of exoplanets (a planet that orbits a star other than the Sun which may be habitable to life as we know).

This throw of 100% cotton is available in two sizes (50″ X 60″ and 60″ X 80″).
