2012 Spring Bada-Bing Vendor Q & A: Jennifer Allevato
Trend spotting: foxes, hedgehogs, mustaches, oh my! - What do you think will be next hottest craft trend? Nautical/oceanic themes will be really hot for summer - I am starting to see octopi everywhere. The chevron theme of a couple years ago seemed to explode and then die quickly, but now I am seeing a rise in chevrons as a use for the general geometric trend. I wasn't sure if the geometric influences would stick around, but I now fully expect to see it saturate every part of the market soon. I am also seeing a rise in the use of natural textures in unexpected places - cork, burlap, linen, and woodgrain make a lovely contrast to everyday sleek and cold metal and glass technology.
