Sourced_Vintage_Studio_Baroque_Interiors

Patternbank caught up with Claire Foster, vintage collector and owner of Sourced Vintage Studio, to hear her thoughts on the catwalk’s influence, on current print and pattern trends.

What key vintage prints or historic eras are you feeling will be influences next season?

I’m really feeling the romanticism of the renaissance period being a big influencer on florals for the more feminine for womenswear that has been gaining pace – especially for dresses and occasion wear. Also I think that historic interior prints, opulent Baroque in particular, look interesting for winter – in heavier fabrics and particularly for outerwear. I also love the gothic black-out florals that have been evolving over the past couple of seasons and think they will be really important for A/W 16/17.
