Fall Winter 2011/2012 Fashion Trends by Connie Crawford

Connie Crawford
Connie Crawford is a well known fashion designer with her own pattern line featured through Butterick and her own company, Fashion Patterns by Coni. She specializes in pattern drafting and fit; and is an amazingly talented speaker. I was fortunate enough to attend Connie's presentation in Las Vegas earlier this year on the trends for Fall and Winter 2011/2012. It is so important for someone like myself who has thousands of products to choose from for customers.

Connie has just posted Fabric & Design Inspiration, a synopsis of her presentation, on her website. It summarizes the highlights of her talk and explains what you can expect to see in the stores, at the upcoming Creativ Festival, and on my website in the coming weeks and months.

Although trends often drive what is available to purchase, I also believe there are lots of opportunities to use fabric and colour to personalize your sewing and wardrobe. So take from it what you like, try something different and new, and most of all enjoy the process!
