We are such big fans of this bold, colorful trend that has been going strong for well over a year. Traditionally, color blocking originates more from the side of fashion design and sewing construction rather than textiles, but there’s no reason you can’t incorporate this look into your print designs. It’s even a little like the collage / Matisse trend that’s been growing in popularity, although more simplified and dramatically enlarged. Be sure to check out the Resort collections from Missoni, Roland Mouret, and Prabal Gurung for additional examples on how to apply this look to your own designs.
