TREND ANALYSIS REPORT
As A/W 18/19 approaches, Fabric For Freedom offers a refreshed edit of the key looks this season. We base this on coverage of the latest catwalks, key influencers' style, trade shows and editorials with the help from WGSN. Each of the trends is broken down into core, fashion and accent categories, and related back to our Autumn/Winter collection. As a sustainable womenswear brand it is important that our values, ethics and activities are ethical and sustainable but it is equally as important to offer desirable fashion that is on trend and relevant. Following the catwalks is key.
Classic items back in the mix; the oversized knit, pencil skirt, blazer and woven shirt. Loose, layering and oversized are key trends within this area. Trans-seasonal dressing with muted autumnal colours. Shop Fabric For Freedom's classic shirt and wrap jacket that fit into this trend here.
Sand, neutrals, camel are all seen coming through the AW18 catwalks. Key look this season is double camel. Check out our head to toe set below. The gentle shades of camel offer a warm and nostalgic feel in every collection.
A nod to the 90s trend with A line silhouettes, vintage looks and classic notions of tailoring and suiting. The use of check, print and texture mixes play a huge part in this trend. Brushed wools, surface textures, corduroy with heavy fabrics and plunged necklines reinforce this Librarian look.
Utility undertones are evident from the Pre Collections in AW18, our cargo pant has derived from this trend. Contrast materials, oversized pockets, buckles and studs are just some of the key features in this area. See our take on this trend with our sturdy cotton structured cargo pants.
Soft draping, texture layering and piecing together materials to highlight skewed lines, paired with drama proportions on sleeves which we have seen for a few seasons. Pleats to bring softness into silhouettes with long and lean styling. Our classic navy dress fits within this category with its asymmetry skews.
