Design-lovers and fabric-enthusiasts alike gathered at James Dunlop Textiles for Designday to hear about what to watch out for in 2016.

The showroom hosted a forecast of trends for the spring/summer 2016 season, presented by WGSN‘s Melbourne-based Lyndal Wallis. Between talks, attendees enjoyed wine and cupcakes and a series of installations showcasing trends to watch: Soft Pop (soft pinks and feminine shapes), Deep Summer (dark floral prints and ocean blues), Eco Active (reused, reinterpreted and refined weaves), and Past Modern (nostalgic textiles such as lace and velvet with a modern approach).
