CHA - Spring Wearable Arts Report

I presented the Spring 2012 Wearable Art Trends report at the 2012 Craft and Hobby Association Winter Show.  Here is what to expect for Spring 2012.  



Spring 2012 promises to be an exciting and creative time for wearable art.  Even more crafters will seek fabric-related products to create fashionable pieces or alter existing pieces in order to express their own unique looks. 

Wearable art trends for Spring 2012 will focus on sorbet colors, fresh prints, sleek silhouettes with flowing fabrics, and dramatic jewelry.   Styles will still have a 1970s inspiration, but will also draw from looks of the 1960s and 1920s, but with an updated feminine and relaxed look. 

Now that the economy is turning upwards, wearable-art designers look to catch the eyes of consumers by using strong sorbet colors in their work in the hope of attracting clients.  Designers are well aware that brighter colors will capture your attention, which they trust will translate into sales.

Let me know what you think Spring 2012 will bring.  Leave your thoughts in the comment area below.
