Leading fashion forecast and trend analysis company Stylesight focuses its attention on the gingham design style for summer 2013.
Traditionally, gingham has been associated with picnics as it’s commonly portrayed in pop culture as the “go-to” style of blanket. For this reason gingham is a summer trend that gives an outdoor, refreshing, and warm vibe. Recently, gingham has been used for an array of products including fashion design, product packaging, stationary, interior design, furniture design and others. Be sure not to confuse gingham style with gangnam style!
“The first summer days are here, and gingham takes center stage from fashion to interiors with a freshness that evokes outdoor times and picnics,” states Stylesight.
