Black and white dots, floral patterns, and colored denims are just a few of the things that caught our eye during our recent fabric sourcing trip to NYC!
Here’s a fun topic for all of you with the winter blues!
This is Mary, Paris Bloom’s chief creative officer. It’s my job to design unique, versatile and beautiful modest dresses. It all starts with choosing the right fabrics.
We begin designing our upcoming collections more than a year in advance. That’s why I took a trip to New York City in the middle of January. The temperatures may have dipped below freezing, but spring/summer 2020 was on my mind thanks to all the vibrant and fun fabric options.
It can be harder to find modest dresses in the summer. We can’t wait to offer you more options by designing our first warm weather collection. There is no shortage of gorgeous fabrics that we can turn into flattering and practical dresses for spring and summer!
For every Paris Bloom collection, it’s important to us to choose quality fabrics that whenever possible contain natural fibers and are washable. This becomes especially important in the summer! Polyester dresses and linings can make you feel hot and sweaty. They don’t have the breathable, sweat wicking properties that more natural fibers such as cotton, linen and viscose have.
You are also probably more on the go in the summer. It’s not practical for you to take every day dresses to the dry cleaners. That’s why we like natural fabrics that can hold up under a gentle wash.
We would love to hear about your favorite fabric types, colors and patterns for spring and summer! We want you to be timeless in our dresses and feel like a work of art.
