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.

Nguyen Cong Tri uses unique silk and traditional techniques to make this collection; I’m not sure if there’s actually any crochet but there’s embroidery and knitting and weaving and there’s definitely a handcrafted crochet inspiration in there.

I’m almost positive that is crochet edging on this Pringle of Scotland men’s runway … if not then it’s definitely inspired by crochet as are a few of the other items in the collection

  1. What do these horrible designs have to do with crocheting. Yes, there is some pieces that are looks like they tried to crochet, but al in all, maybe if your 16 you might want to wear this type of clothing, but to show it on this web-site if a waste of your tome and mine. Stick to things that are more realistic item that people would be more interested in. Thanks.

    • Diana, how about you try trolling somewhere else? You type like a child, and obviously have no sense of any sort of higher fashion sensibility. These designs are more than everyday wear and are suitable inspirations for crocheters with true talent. If you do not like it, look away. Waste your “tome” trolling another site.

      Kathryn, thank you for the article.
