Prints Please!

With the summer season drawing to a close, we pick out the prints you can wear on these last moments of sunshine and plan for this coming winter


We've seen a whole explosion of amazing, bright, bold and classic prints resurfacing for the spring and summer months of this year. Although stores and fashionistas alike are looking towards autumnal trends, we'd like to hang onto summer a little while longer and savour these fabulous prints, whilst planning our winter wardrobes. Our range of clearance Makower fabrics will cover all the bases.

First up, we have the classically cool staple for any power suit. That's right, we're talking about stripes and pinstripes.

This year, we saw them adorning the suits and deconstructed shirts of RED Valentino, DKNY, Mulberry and Roberto Cavalli. You can recreate their creations at a fraction of the price, or start something completely new with the stripe collection from Makower. Featuring the classic deckchair pattern in eight colourways, this will look fabulous made into a smashing meeting outfit.

Classic Stripes

Next, we have the gorgeous ditsy wallpaper prints from the likes of Victoria Beckham, Fendi and Chloé. Think delicate doilies and grandma's cushions - but with an updated twist. Cover yourself with spraytime and ditsy prints for the ultimate girly look. Oh how floral doesn't get boring!

Granny-sheek wallpaper winners

A trend we couldn't not notice is this year's mighty summer staple print: gingham. This print is a real winner as it's over 400 years old! A must for any holiday wardrobe, we have nine colours of the gorgeous gingham fabric available to make a whole host of summer essentials!

Gorgeous Gingham, need we say more?

Who can forget about the polka-dot? It's come full circle yet again and graced the Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and Givenchy catwalks. Create a gorgeous 50's inspired skirt, or a simple sleeveless top. Need we say more?

Polka proud

As the leaves change and Starbucks becomes even more present in our mornings, we'll see the rise in the versatile colour of the season. Brown. Often mistaken as a 'boring shade', brown looks effortlessly sheek, whether it's part of a new pair of boots, or as a statement coat. We're loving the statement subtle spraytime and chocolate brown fabrics we have in stock now!

Turn that frown upside brown

The seventies are making a comeback this season! Think bold. Think floral. Think amazing. Recreate your own Prada suit jacket, or take inspiration from Chloé's impeccable collection. Have fun and don't forget your kitten heels!

Oh so 70s

Feeling blue? Cornflower is back and better than ever. Seen on the catwalks of Celine, Balenciaga and Miu Miu, this muted colour will see you through to spring. Experiment with our Makower polka and ditsy prints.

Cornflower power

We have a weird, but potentially wonderful one for our closing bit. For a new coat this winter, why not try a quilted blanket coat? Something sounding so snug should be amazing, right?

Mulberry's coat of the season

This number from Mulberry captures the delicate pattern perfectly and you can achieve a similar look with virtually any of our Makower fabrics we have on sale. Pick from pretty florals, or perhaps opt for bright stripes for an 80s - inspired power coat?

Who says cosy can't be cool?
