from runway to bumpway: floral print

by TRESCHICMAMA on March 7, 2012 · 11,048 comments

Floral prints made an appearance in many designers’ Spring Summer 2012 runway shows such as Prabal Gurung, Proenza Schouler, Giambattista Valli and Erdem in a big, bold way. This season’s must-have pattern comes in magnified versions, 3D motifs and against metallic fabrics.  To work this trend into your everyday wardrobe, let this one blossoming piece be your statement, keep everything else in a neutral palette and wear minimal jewelry.   Here’s a roundup of our (bump-friendly) translation to this flourishing trend.
