I love a dark, moody floral for winter and this trend is no exception. This print uses dark bases with a pop of red or pink florals and photographic motifs, or digitally altered images. Not a watercolour or hand drawn flower in sight for this one! For me, roses are perfect and integral to this theme, but other types of flower work as well. Just make sure you're using actual photographs, rather than anything else. It's a great excuse to buy some lovely vibrant flowers to photograph!
I think this trend is best for Women's fashion, although it could work in high-end Men's collections too. My personal tip for this look; play with the scale. Really large prints can work great along side small scale ones; for a high end look you could mix prints within one garment, or for a more commercial take, one collection.
I hope you like this trend as much as I do and feel inspired to create your own prints for this trend. If you're looking for prints but don't know where to start, I'd love to work with you on this and have limited spaces for working with clients 1-on-1. I also have a small selection of pre-designed prints, which you can view on request. If this is of interest, you can get in touch by clicking here.
