A Pradaesque fabric findThursday, August 02, 2012
Love this print from Prada's fall collection. Though I wouldn't want to wear it as a trouser suit ensemble.
Luckily I was able to find something very similar in a fabric store in Lisbon. But instead it's a soft lovely rayon fabric and perfect for a fall dress.
Fabric shopping turned out to be surprisingly great in Lisbon. Plenty of fabric and notion stores smacked in the middle of the city center - unheard of in other European cities I have visited. And the selection was very good, with lots of glamorous (and pricey) Italian fashion fabrics and great bargains too with distinct prints, like this rayon fabric. Unfortunately I was on a tight budget so the trip didn't turn into a fabric shopping spree, the kids has to eat and whatnot after all. Plus I ended up buying a dress too. But I did take some photos and will put up a short guide to fabric shopping in Lisbon another day.
