Girls Trending – Transitional 2017

Now that everyone is excited for summer time, we here at New Creation have already started looking ahead at the seasons to come. As if designing kids’ clothes wasn’t fun enough already, we’ve decided to focus on some the most exciting emerging trends for girls, just because we love them!

As the seasons transition from summer to fall and then onto winter, we will continue to see blush and neutral tones dominate the market. Traditionally feminine fabrics like tulle and lace will be paired with more contemporary textures like leather, metallics, and satin. Playful, illustrative prints will continue throughout the year complimented by animal prints and crochet embellishments that have been poplar for the past couple of years.

Some new, heavier textures in the colder months like faux fur allude to an emerging vintage vibe that we totally love. I mean, who doesn’t love a tutu, some fur, and a bomber jacket? It’s time to go all out on your textures.

Technique of the Month: Foil

Who doesn’t love something shiny? This month we are focusing on one of New Creation’s favorite techniques, foil printing. Foil is extremely popular with our t-shirt customers but is often used on higher-end garments to add an extra touch of glam. Foil begins like any other design we screen print: The desired image is burned into a screen… Continue Reading

Everyday Art Inspirations

We love finding artistic inspiration in the most unlikely of places. Forcing us to look at what is normally considered a cheap toy, Lenore Edman photographs superballs as if they were sculptures at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We usually see these type of toys crammed together inside a quarter machine outside of the supermarket, children… Continue Reading
