The Los Angeles based fabric supplier notes that it is important for designers to stock up on all of these types of fabrics, so they can be ready to jump on any potential trends that may be on the horizon.

According to an article posted July 9 in the Washington Post, an early look at the spring-summer 2016 fashion trends shows that many fabrics once reserved for women’s clothing are being used to make unique styles for men. The author notes that certain designs using floral prints and lace are showing up more and more in men’s fashion lines displayed in recent shows. While many of these designs aren’t entirely new, and remind some observers of a male fashion sense more commonly seen in the 1970s, notes Fabric Selection Inc., it points to a possible resurgence if this aesthetic happens to reenter popular culture. The Los Angeles based fabric supplier notes that it is important for designers to stock up on all of these types of fabrics, so they can be ready to jump on any potential trends that may be on the horizon. Here are some fabrics available from Fabric Selection Inc. that are primed to become more popular as the year goes on:

  • Floral Prints – The great part about floral prints, notes Fabric Selection Inc., is that manufacturers can achieve a floral aesthetic with a wide variety of fabric in Los Angeles. Because the unique aspect of this design that is being applied to male clothing pertains to the look and not the textile itself, it can be utilized in many different ways.
  • Lace – Often used as an embellishment to a design, or as the primary fabric for lightweight clothing and nightwear, Fabric Selection Inc. identifies lace as a great option for both masculine and feminine designs. Fabric Selection notes that they make both solid lace and printed lace in order to expand the number of options that designers have when choosing to utilize lace fabric.
  • Polyester – In addition to being used on its own, polyester can be used to make a variety of different, highly sought after fabrics including chiffon fabric that can be used in many different designs. Chiffon is just one of the many woven fabrics that are available at Fabric Selection Inc., and they assure the highest quality in all of their products.

Fabric Selection Inc. offers all of these fabrics, and all of the more basic fabrics that designers rely on at wholesale prices. They also note that their online ordering systems makes it easy for customers who want to visualize and examine their orders, but they also offer traditional, in person ordering. Anyone interested in browsing their selection or placing an order today can call (213) 747-6297 or visit them online at http://www.fabricselection.com.
