Minjoo Chae is a fashion photographer and filmmaker in London who is “bringing eccentric imagination to life”. That seems to be true of this fashion art video called Crochet, Intertwined Loops.
I have really enjoyed the seasonal collections from Annie’s Signature Designs which launched with Summer Love, continued with Autumn Bliss and now includes the Spring Breeze collection. This series of patterns comes from lead designer Lena Skvagerson, who I’ve been lucky enough to interview for each collection, including this new one.
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 in crochet. 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.
