Walking through the Summer Indigo show I have not seen many new trends but rather the continuation of the trends in new updated versions. Studios are doing a tremendous job to create something new and exciting and salable prints every season by mixing, placing, moving, re-coloring or abstracting familiar objects; big or small flowers, animal skins, fishes or birds, paisley, tropical motives, butterflies, symbols, zebras, giraffes, african and tribal motives.
Some studios who participated in Printsource were either took a chance and signed up to Indigo, some decided to drop the Summer show altogether. or the more adventurous ones jumped to Surtex. Missing the non participating studios from Indigo I decided to report not only what I have seen at the show but also on studios working on Spring 2015 trends.
