A fashion print can be as versatile as any part of a garment – it can be low key and subtle or as loud as you like. Few things can have the scope or impact of a print. A fashion print and especially a yardage print, requires certain skills and tenacity. It is something that is planned at inception of a design and inception of a collection. It is part of the plan – part of the motive – part of the cut – and a decisive part of the marketing.

4 Approaches to Print –
There is the design centric collection where there are a combination of different prints linking to fabrics and cut through theme, colour and execution. Which may be watered down between the catwalk and the actual production to several prints but would still remain the multi print focused collection.
The next style is more a collection unified by cuts and fabric with one design / element across the entire collection in different shapes and forms. This is a very directional approach and may dilute in the number of garments from catwalk to production. The print remains a key focal point.
This approach is a hallmark of a savvy designer. One print, sometimes two versions. Something like a positive and negative of the same print or a scaled version of the same print or a print containing a key element from the first print …. or the same print in two different colourways. Regardless, the print is strong and the intent is impact and great use of a clearer objective and resolved design. This type of work is just as likely to be a surf range doing a ultra credible hand printed board short as a womens wear designer putting a unique print across a dress and mini. A signature print can enjoy extended life beyond the collection and will almost certainly surface later as a mark of the designer.
Staples are great. We can print stripes and spots and leapard skins (season and decade dependant) for almost any market and any product. They don’t argue with a collection and are a great way to acheive a classic look without fuss. Unified by colour, staples are a great way to illustrate and throw attention back to the cut and fabric.
