Floral Prints

   Spring is already here, but Summer is on her way. Don't you feel it's time for the floral prints? Why not anticipate the warmest season by starting to wear floral printed clothing?

   I've looked up some " floral outfits" in the Couture Spring 2013 Collections and these enchanted me the most:

Armani Prive



Chanel





 
 
Christian Dior





Maison Martin Margiela




Valentino




   I found this amazing website( http://demodecouture.com/cotton/) on which I found a beautiful history of the printed fabrics. It is impressive: in India, the printed fabrics were developed in the 14th century and they were brought to Europe in the 17th century. The first prints were floral. In the Victorian Era, in England, nature( especially the plant kingdom) played a very important role in interior design and in Fashion design; because of the accelerated development of technology, people got so exhausted that they began to seek for every opportunity to relax and even to escape. William Morris's floral designs are the most famous:




















   I hope you enjoyed reading and viewing these photos.
   Have a lovely evening,
   Kisses, A.
