^ Your prints are quite interesting, would be nice to see how that translates into a garment
I also quite like the prints that Etro and Missoni do, but my all time favourite - without a doubt - remains Versace. The SS2010/11 collection was a splendid example. Tisci also produces some great prints..

That print wore By Michaela K. of the DVF picture you've posted, it's just amazing !! And it really suits the shape of the dress so well... And the fabric... just gorgeous.

Maybe I'll add Issey Miyake to my list providing geometric folding techniques should be included here.

Thanks for all of your posts xirja, those Balmain prints are interesting, and specially for the fact that they're all Black/White, a nice change from all colorful Etro, Williamson and Pucci we're used to. You don't get to see much prints with Black and White.

I love geometric prints. They're my favourite kinds of prints. And especially futurism inspired ones.

Surely Vlada. I'm glad my overly broad definition of "prints" isn't disagreeable. I figure they must have done marking/printing on the fabric before the embroidery. Same goes for woven and pleated fabrics with respect to the layout of the pattern beforehand. As far as B&W vs. color, I'm totally in agreement there ...and you know, one could argue that white is in fact the entire spectrum of color, for those who need to be convinced that B&W is ok.
