I have always found it fascinating to see how clothing fashion can influence interior design trends. I attend both Fashion Week and High Point, and I have been observing the correlation between the two worlds. There was once a 5 to 6 year lag from the runway to furniture showrooms, then a couple of years ago we were seeing just a 2 year or 2 season lag, and now both worlds are engaging as the creative minds are joining together with the social media forces.
It seems, according to many, that almost as soon as a collection hits the runway, reporters, photographers and bloggers are sharing these events with their readers and viewers. Through these images that are posted on blogs, websites and across our television screens to the consumer. So, where fashion was once a true driver of the world of interiors, the two are now working together.
