In the Mood for...Crafted Fashion

Craft_Mood_Inspiration

Holy Craft! One of the latest trends on the 2014 Resort runways takes a few style notes from earlier, less technological, times. From dainty needlepoint to earthy macrame, hand-crafted fashions have seen a resurgence as of late- and no one could be more thrilled about this than a fashion DIY'er! Crafted Fashion will be the theme this entire week on StyleOnHigh, so settle in to find out more about this trend...

Craft_Mood_McQueen

One of my favorite collections was the craft-heavy bohemian lineup at Alexander McQueen. The show's macrame, crochet, patchwork denim, floral tapesty, and whipstitched leather, gave an air of retro Americana in the beautiful way possible.

Craft_Mood_Valentino

In an exciting departure from the usual refined glamour of Valentino, the Resort collection ushered in a new earthy and bohemian look. A more delicate take on the craft trend than at Alexander McQueen, the show featured lots of dainty, feminine embroideries, but my favorite pieces, hands down, were the amazing floral macrame-embroidered dresses, one of which is shown above.

I'm so excited for all the craft-tastic things lined up for this week! Tomorrow I'll be sending out another 50 Under $50 and you can look forward to some awesome DIY fun headed your way! See you soon!
