After finding inspiration from the design work and textiles inside the Taj Mahal, emerging designer grant recipient R’Bonney Nola searched far and wide for fabrics to replicate these intricate patterns for The Pin Show, a Dallas, Texas based event that provides a platform for both emerging and established designers. As her search for this particular fabric left her empty handed, she quickly took matters into her own hands and put her semester of learning Adobe Illustrator to work by designing her own fabric. R’Bonney is visiting the blog today to share her experience as an emerging designer and what inspires her most.
Looking for a lovely fabric to stitch up a summer dress or top? Silky Faille is an elegant fabric that drapes beautifully and is appropriate for a variety of different projects. When printed, this 100% polyester fabric features crisp, brilliant color that holds up great in the wash. Its soft touch makes it ideal for apparel, such as dresses, blouses and scarves. Pillows and drapes are also a great way to take advantage of this fabric’s perfect weight and flow. One lucky winner will take home three yards of custom printed Silky Faille to stitch up their favorite warm weather project!
