Fabric Update

Hello all from Chicago! I just returned from a fabric show in North Carolina and have some exciting trends to report. First of all, the fabric manufacturers are really sticking to the pantone color pallet this fall, Turquoise is still a hot color, but paired with a more muted/toned down grayish brown. Yellow and grey are still big, but the yellow is more of a golden yellow, aka coin yellow. I also noticed a lot of fuchsia, dusty rose, and dull purple. This fall will definitely feel warmer and less drab with these brighter colors, which is great for our long Chicago winters. Ikat is still around and we added a few for Fall, one named The Green Mill, (a bar in Chicago all you city girls should check out) and a black one that will be here in August - name to be determined. Another one of my favorites for the upcoming Fall/Winter is hounds tooth. We picked up a black flocked version (everyone loves flocking) that is very sophisticated and classy. I think this fabric will be a huge hit. Well, that’s it for now. I’ll keep you updated on the new fabrics coming to LILL!
