Fabrics are flush with sparkle, sheen and mesmerizing detail for spring 2019, a season defined by delicate, ethereal buoyancy. The soft hues of ballet pink, champagne and twinkling iridescent swathes presented at Première Vision, Texworld and JETRO’s Textile Salon collectively signaled a sunny spell ahead.
Embroidery is spring’s leitmotif, realized across sheer fabrics, denims and cut jacquards. And, overarching industry trends of sustainability and technology were on full display at each show. Première Vision’s selection of sustainable fabrics was introduced in its Smart Creation Square, a new space that spotlighted 55 ecological materials from exhibitors, underscoring responsibly dyed fabrics, ethically manufactured materials and recycled fibers, either natural or synthetic. Organizers of the show said sustainability was at the core of its winter edition.
Ganni turned over a new leaf for spring 2019, reports @fionawsma from Copenhagen Fashion Week. Instead of sending its signature floral-print dresses down the runway, the brand collaborated with 66 North, a technical outerwear brand, and produced a chic-yet-utilitarian offering that included a tie-dye vest and short set, and leopard-print pieces sprinkled among the khaki parkas and bucket hats. #wwdfashion #ganni #copenhagenfashionweek

“I’ve been an actress since I was like 10 or 12, and then I went to drama school. I have a technique, and I have a process that I bring to every role. And I can talk about it, but that kind of makes it less magic, and also when I talk about it, it makes me feel like I’m full of myself,” ‘Crazy Rich Asians Star’ Constance Wu tells @leighen .(📸: @emmanmontalvan: styled by @micaelaerlanger ) #wwdeye #crazyrichasians #constancewu
