I read an article on msn.com that was quite funny. It was about the 10 decorating trends from 2012 that people wished would go away. I guess people are over taxidermy and chalkboard walls. Another trend the msn facebook followers wished would be over is NEON…
I’m not sure how I feel about neon as a decorating scheme, especially neon pink or orange on my walls. However, I do like hits of neon in apparel, accessories and even on my shoes.
Don’t throw away your neon items quite yet. You will continue to see neon this spring and most likely into fall 2013. The footwear brand that I work for is currently shipping super bright colors – neon pink and yellow and even neon “sunflower”. Look for subtle variations as well. Smaller pops of bright color in places such as buttons, stitching, fabric underlays and zippers.
I look forward to sewing with neon this spring. However, with with non-commercial and home sewing it isn’t always the easiest to find sewing materials that reflect the latest trends. This is something I have always found VERY irritating. So, as I scour the internet for neon notions and fabric, I will keep everyone posted on what I find.
Until next time.. Happy Sewing!
