  • Spring Florals in Bloom at Mood Fabrics Stores and Online

    Swatch, Mood Designer Fabrics' active mascot, is unusually pensive as he considers fabric options for his Easter Parade outfit.
    Spring is finally here and Swatch thinks a floral print and trim would make a perfect outfit to wear in this Sunday's annual Easter Parade on NYC's Fifth Avenue. Fortunately Mood Designer Fabrics has loads of colorful floral prints and trims both in store (New York and Los Angeles locations) and online. Swatch is posing here with three pretty florals from the NYC store at 225 W. 37th Street: clockwise from top left, a gray silk crepe with luscious red and pink roses, an Oscar de la Renta silk twill in bold colors, and a sky-blue cotton print featuring cabbage roses. At Swatch's paws are just a few of our spring trims from our ever-expanding trim department. Can't make it to our NYC or LA stores? Mood Fabrics online has a bevy of beautiful floral prints in all types of fabrics. Swatch has exceptional taste in fabrics and he thinks these florals from our online store would make great spring outfits:
    White cotton batiste with flowers in blues, greens and browns. Ideal for tops, tunics and caftans.
    Vivid rayon jersey in purple, fuschia, yellow, orange and green. Perfect for spring and summer dresses and tops.
    Gorgeous silk chiffon in soft pastel colors, with lurex and sequins for subtle bling. Sews up into dreamy tops and dresses.
    And don't forget we have loads and loads of trims in both store locations and online. A little trim here or there can add the perfect signature touch to a spring outfit. Hey readers, what are you sewing for spring? Tell us here...
  • Spring 2010 Trend Report

    Once the holiday festivities come to an end so will the rocker glam trends of seasons past. Come spring, make room for a whole new wardrobe. Time to trade in your winter blacks and grays for olives and khakis and glitterati sequins for floral prints.

    spring-2010-trend-report-11spring-2010-trend-report-22spring-2010-trend-report-31 spring-2010-trend-report-41spring-2010-trend-report-51 My favorite runway show from Spring 2010 came from Stella McCartney. I felt that her collection was the best at covering a bit of most of the trends for Spring 2010 rather than focusing on just one. The first big trend for spring is the revival of military inspired looks. The use of olives and khakis can be seen all over the runway. In the first three pictures above you can see this trend demonstrated with a more feminine rather than masculine approach. The first look is a new take on the cargo pant and her wide leg version with pleats comes off as more feminine rather than military. The second is a stylish thermal romper in an ombre print. The third look is a floral/camouflage print dress with a canvas belt that keeps this look feminine and classic. The next big trend for spring is a feminine look through the use of floral prints and neutral tones in soft silks and lace. The silk pleated floral dress with ruffles is one of my favorite looks from the collection, sure to be an easy and bold way to pull off the feminine floral trend. The next look is a chic, and feminine way to play with different tones and textures in the neutral trend. Here, Stella paired different shades of khaki and a light pink lace top to add a touch of femininity.
