We recently went to Première Vision New York at Pier 94 on the 17 – 18 January 2017. It was a great show with all the studios and fabric manufactures ready for the new Spring/Summer 2018 season. Whilst we were there, we took the opportunity of visiting the trend forum areas. Many thanks to our eyes and ears in New York and Patternbank Designer Alice Lam of Circlealine.

Below is our quick recap of the key print trends that the Premiere Vision Fashion teams have highlighted for Spring/Summer 2018.
