Wearable Arts 2012 Trends - Accessories Part 1
Lifetime’s Project Runway’s spin-off show, Project Accessories, promises to bring greater awareness to accessories, wearable art, and wearable-art designers. Creating accessories or altering existing accessories will be one of this spring’s strong trends.
With garments being sleek, jewelry pieces are making more of a fashion statement. This spring, big is the hot trend.
While belts will be rising in popularity, clutch purses for afternoon or evening events will be even more popular. Designers who make clutch purses will look for interesting colors to contrast with garments. Altered-art designers will look for clutch purses to embellish and make into wearable works of art.
Crafters will continue their love of hair accessories for young fashionistas. In addition to ribbons for headbands, hats, and barrettes, look for flowers, gems, and even decorative buttons this spring.
