The inclusivity that is existent within floral prints has made them a staple for the summer, and something that we are seeing more and more in the fashion world.
Fashion Week has been obsessed with floral prints with 1480 floral looks showing a 17% growth rate spanning the most recent fashion week. Fashion Week acts as an opinionated identity stipulating the trendiest fashion takes of the season.
Fashion Week, herself, comments on traditional florals by introducing new methods of exploring nature via mixed-textiles and layering to showcase organic movement in nature.
Fashionista’s expression of love for small floral prints is evident in the trending floral swimsuits from Blackbough Swim and lunch dresses like LoveShackFancy. The design visions explored in Fashion Week expertly target the renewal of spring and the welcoming of summer as it uplifts the wearer’s mood.
