Here is a sampling of what caught my eye and I am loving from Paris Deco Off 2014.
Osborne and Little is betting that trims are going to make a comeback; putting their money on their new Cornish Trim collection shown in this stunning display window reminiscent of Little Mermaid.( It won Best Window!) I am a “more is better” person so my fingers are crossed that passementerie is chic again.
Embroideries were EVERYWHERE . The next one was more beautiful than the first. Companies are exploring new grounds, mixing machine- made with hand done and bringing back techniques that was almost gone.

Wool and velvet take it up a notch. Wool in all weights was presented and Velvet became more baroque – certainly in the complex finishes and weaves.
Holland and Sherry introduced a custom quilted wool collection. You pick the wool, yarn color and quilt style to customize your looks.
Cassaro fabrics from Houston is always a favorite. Here is a jacquard cut velvet that has been overprinted with a rose pattern. Stunning!
Romo Black Edition was searching for a permanent embossing techniques so they used long nap velvet, embossed I;t then cut the nap to create this permanent moire inspired pattern- and it’s soft as buttah!
