Each year there will be trends that are applicable to the sewing space. Those who are in this industry to make a living must stay on top of these trends. They give way to fashion and this is customers will demand. The following is an example of what trends can look like each year and what the focuses are usually placed on.
Textures in the fabric is always a big thing when it comes to fashion. It will also depend on the sewing project. For example, if it is going to be an article of clothing or something for décor. For 2020 for the home décor trend it seems to be raw weave materials that are going to be in. Stubby type fabrics that are going to create a sense of style and warmth.
The patterns in the fabric make up a lot of the appeal in the project they are going to be used in. For 2020 clients are looking for trendy patterns that are based on long brush stoke art. This is ultra-modern art but there are still that believe the modern mixed with the rustic will trend.
Flowers always seem to find their way into every trend and every season. For 2020 the highlight is on wildflowers with deep shades and are bold and dramatic with the patterns of the fabric showing them in full bloom often set on a dark background.
It seems like yellow is the color of choice for 2020 but in the Mello range. It is being contrasted with light tan colors as well as charcoal and greys.
The thing to keep in mind when looking at trends is to remember they can be short-lived lasting no longer than a year. So when buying extra stock keep this in mind or you could end up with a surplus of fabric that would come back into fashion for several years.
