After looking at the crochet fashion on the runways this year, I was reminded to check in on Katie Jones who always creates knit and crochet collections. She has a SS 17 collection called Pepperland, and when I checked it out I realized I’d never seen her Autumn ’16 collection (“Highland Fling”). Both have great designs!
I never get tired of seeing designer crochet hit the runways. I like seeing the way crochet is used in seasonal fashion trends. I like seeing the bits of handwork in what is sometimes mass produced fashion. I love seeing how craft informs fashion and fashion turns around and informs craft. Here are some of the bits of crochet spotted on recent runways for Fall 2017.
A look back at 2016 all'uncinetto. We have already looked at crochet art and crochet books. Now let’s enjoy some CROCHET FASHION.
I’ve shared the beautiful work of designer Tatyana from Ruchki Kruchki before. She is a prolific knit and crochet designer whose stunning fashions always make me look twice when the images pop up on Instagram. I thought I’d share some of the most recent images here today but be sure to go to Instagram to see them all!
It is always inspiring to see designer crochet hit the runways and the shows for Spring 2017 have been no exception.
Back in the spring, when I interviewed designer Lena Skvagerson about the Annie’s Signature Summer Love Collection of knit and crochet patterns, I asked her if there would be future seasons to come. She responded, “We are hoping the first collection is welcomed by our customers, and with our full hopes in this, we are right now in the first phase of planning a follow up fall collection.” And here we are, headed into fall, with a brand new collection launching today: The Autumn Bliss Collection.
I always feel inspired when I take a look at high fashion crochet, whether it is designer crochet, crochet worn by celebrities, or exquisite one-of-a-kind crochet clothing created by someone for a special occasion. Here are ten more inspiring examples of crochet fashion.
