In January I shared the fashion designers who had already put crochet on the runway for 2017, but the main fashion week shows hadn’t happened, yet. Now they have so it’s time for the update!
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.
It is always inspiring to see designer crochet hit the runways and the shows for Spring 2017 have been no exception.
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.
I never get tired of seeing what Helen Rodel is doing in crochet art fashion! Her black and white crochet dresses are perfectly accented with her colorful new bobble purses featuring fabulous crochet hook handles!
