Prints embellish your beauty...

            Textile printing is the process of applying colour to fabric in definite patterns or designs. In properly printed fabrics the colour is bonded with the fiber, so as to resist washing and friction.

Textile printing is related to dyeing but, whereas in dyeing proper the whole fabric is uniformly covered with one colour, in printing one or more colours are applied to it in certain parts only, and in sharply defined patterns.

 This is the year of the print. Expect floral splashes, animal prints and geometric shapes to come in all guises, shades and textures as designers such as Oscar de la Renta and Marc Jacobs look to India, Africa and even the Cotswolds for a heady mix of printed inspiration. 

If that sounds like an excuse to unearth your holiday buys and recycle your curtains, then be warned: wearing prints is no easy ride.

Like most perennial trends, there are rules that must be followed. Luckily, the High Street has a dreamy selection of printed pieces which, if worn properly, will raise your fashion
