Trend Bible Autumn Winter 2019/20
To inspire designers and retailers, in each of our trend books we offer a curated collection of directional material samples from a number of high quality sources. For the second year, in a bid to provide a platform for the newest design talent, we’ve collaborated with a selection of Design for Textiles students at Heriot-Watt University
The programme offers three disciplines allowing the students to specialise in knit, print or weave. In anticipation of the release of our Autumn Winter 2019/20 Trend Books we highlight the innovative work of some of the students included in either our Home & Interiors or Baby & Kids publications.
Left to Right: Designed by Cara Fowles, Colene McKee & Rhona McCarte
Cara Fowles created an intricate knitted fabric with bold colour pops and scalloped edging. Colene McKee designed a playful contrasting knit comprising of semi circular shapes and raised textures. Rhona McCarte developed a digital print using simple geometrics with a textured feel onto a stretch jersey fabric. All three designs resulted in fabrics perfect for their respective trends.
Left to Right: Designed by Calum Chisholm & Sophie Thomson
Calum Chisholm created a densely structured woven fabric using soft tones and yarns of differing weights. This resulted in a final fabric with an imperfect feel which reflected the chosen trend perfectly. Sophie Thomson designed a honeycomb structured weave using bright and contrasting colours. Incorporating metallic yarns and sequins added a hint of sparkle to the finished fabric.
Each of these fabrics, feature exclusively in our Autumn Winter 2019/20 trend books. These books are seen as an essential tool by some of the world’s best brands and retailers, helping them make sound decisions about how to respond to future change. Click here to find out more information.
Overall a great day which involved getting everyone's thoughts, ideas and reservations down on paper. I am looking forward to seeing how this information will be overlaid with the vital trend insights we need to drive new product development and long-term business growth.
