5 Fabric Trends for Spring

We see a lot of fabric around here at the Bloomerie studio so it’s easy for us to spot fabric trends months before new collections are released. While we could tempt you with summer, fall, and winter 2015 trends — and make you wait all that time to get your hands on this great stuff — we figured we show off some of the stuff we’re seeing right now (or coming very, very soon). Here are 5 fabric trends for spring 2015:
