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.
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.
It’s always fun to see what kind of crochet makes it onto the runway. Sometimes it even inspires our own (lower-budget) couture designs.
It’s that time of year, the time for looking back and checking out all of the amazing things that we’ve seen in crochet all throughout the year. So far we’ve looked at crochet art in 2015 and 2015 crochet books. Today let’s look at crochet fashion from this year.
It’s currently Paris Fashion Week, which follows on the heels of Milan Fashion Week, London Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week. This seems like the perfect time to look at recent high fashion crochet, including fashion items that walked the runways at these various events.
Back in October I shared the work of 5 designers who put crochet into their Spring ’15 runway shows (Givenchy, Ryan Lo, Sibling, Pucci and and Proenza Schouler). But spring was so far away then and it’s getting closer now so I thought we could use some more inspiration. Here are more crochet looks from the Spring ’15 runways and designer collections.
Katie Jones, a knitwear designer with a crochet collection that I adore. I learned about her from a post on @thegoodwardrobe about London Fashion Week.
