Sneak Peeks, Spring 2020

Help Us Choose Fabric for Spring/Summer 2020

Black and white dotted, floral, and colored denim fabrics

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.

    I love the A-line dresses and skirts. They’re so flattering on so many body types. And versatile! They look great long or short, and in all sorts of different materials. Can’t wait to get a sneak peek of what you ladies come up with!

    1. Paris Bloom says:

      Agreed Amanda! Stay tuned, we think there’s a great style for every body type :)

    I recently watched The Guernsey movie on Netflix (I thought it was a pretty clean, sweet movie!), and I was drawn to those post-WWII fashions! From wide-leg trousers, to blouses and pencil skirts, to floor-length gowns, the womens’ attire seemed classic, feminine and modest. In the very last scene of the movie, the heroine comes outside in this lovely, light blue dress, and when I saw it I though, “That!” It’s just what I dream of in a summer dress! I am really excited to see what you ladies design!

    I love wearing contrasting colors next to each other, but I gravitate towards solid colors for individual pieces of my outfit-I.e., plain blue skirt, solid burgundy blouse. Spring and summer I still prefer long sleeves, especially if they are somewhat loose in the arm. In general, long and flowing is what I like to wear, fitted or belted at the waist and wide enough to work or break into a run.
    Linen is about perfect for the heat and humidity of summer.

      Couldn’t agree more! Thank you for the fantastic feedback.

    My favorite style is fit-and-flare: tailoredf on top with a big skirt on the bottom (but fitted through the hips to be especially flattering). For summer, my favorite fabrics are light cottons and rayons.
