The Artisan Fashion Trend Summer 2016

Today’s outfit is inspired by the Artisan Fashion Trend which is a huge trend this summer.

This spring and summer, one of the big trends is Artisan clothing. An artisan isΒ someone that makes something by hand using special techniques such asΒ unique prints or embroidery. You may have noticed in the stores there are a lot of embroidered and embellished items this spring.

Today’s dress is a true artisan piece. It was sent to me by a company called EAST. I have been following the brand for many years and have bought a few items from in the past which have been really unique and excellent quality. EAST is a British brand whose clothes are designed in London but are made using individual artisans from all over the world. They have a very unique collection of clothes and accessories that are exclusive to the brand. They ship worldwide.

My outfit today is the Sahara Print Sundress that has been Handblock Printed by Anokhi. The Anokhi Farm is in Jaipur in India where handblock printing is an ancient art form and EAST are one of the very few stockistsΒ of this craft in the UK. The dress is one of the most beautiful sundresses I have ever owned. The quality is very high and being 100% cotton. It is perfect for keeping cool this summer. It would make a lovely dress for holidays or home. I have accessorised withΒ a hand stitched Pom Pom Clutch Bag that has been sourced from Morocco.

I hope you like the post. I have tried to show all of the details in the pics of this beautiful dress and bag and I hope that they translate through to you.

I will be styling both of these items again throughout the spring and summer season.
