FABRICS & FASHION




Throughout my career at Wesco Fabrics I have marveled at the creativity of textile designers around the world. I have attended fabulous textile trade fairs in Frankfurt, Paris, Brussels, New York, & High Point sourcing fabrics for our company. Great home furnishing fabric designs were in abundance, but they do not come close to the amazing fabrics used in haute couture. Kate Moss wears a beautiful design by the always creative Etro for their Fall 2015 collection.




Another great Etro design photographed by the famous fashion photographer Mario Testino.  Italian style is always out there and wonderfully made!




The fabric & construction of this design rocked the runway for Valentino's Fall/Winter 2015/2016 collection. I could definitely see this as a fabulous looking drapery panel!


Balmain Paris sourced fantastic fabrics for their Fall/winter collection. Could it translate to home furnishings? Love the sizzle!


Carolina Herrera created this fantastic evening gown with printed & embellished sheer fabric for her Fall 2015 collection. Love the colors!




For Spring 2016 Gucci used metallic jacquard woven fabrics for this highly unusual design. Totally wild!




Prada sourced fantastical fabrics for their Spring 2016 collection. I would love to follow their designers around as they discover those amazing textiles Prada is known for!




Chloe used fabulously printed sheers on this design. Gaby Aghion emigrated from Alexandria, Egypt, in 1945 and founded Chloe in 1952. She continued to run the house until 1985.


For their Spring 2016 collection Dolce & Gabbana were inspired by a love of Italy. Very fun & whimsical!
