Fall/Winter 2011 Fashion Trend: The Fade Effect

The last few weeks of the winter season can be excruciating…who wants to make the effort to dress up, only to go out side and tackle the cold weather, heavy winds, ice rain and black slush? Staying in and browsing through fashion week photos to spot trends is so much more favourable.

The fade effect is a subtle style that many designers portrayed in their collections at fashion weeks in New York, Paris and London, by using dark shades to fade into light hues, resulting in an overall tie-dye appearance.

In New York, this style was shown simply in both a long, flowing gown and a calf-length dress that appeared on the runway, while in Paris it was embellished with texture.

In London, Lela Rose used the technique to give character to a fur jacket, while other designers combined the fade effect with printed fabrics.
