Fashion Trend Report: 3D Embelishments

This spring and summer, designers are taking fashion to a whole new dimension.


One of the most wonderful aspects of fashion is finding a garment that not only looks great, but also fires up your imagination. Clothes that can accomplish that make you walk a little taller and may even convince you to dress in a way you have never tried before. During Fashion Week for the spring/summer 2014 collections, designers were out to inspire that creative vibe with playful, beautiful 3D garments.

Designers such as Miuccia Prada, Vera Wang and Tomas Maier for Bottega Veneta sent stunning frocks festooned with 3D blooms and stones down the runway. We love this trend for its whimsy and its nod to the beauty of nature.

Celebrity trendsetters such as Cate Blanchett and Sienna Miller have noted the beauty of these designs and chose to wear them for award season this year. Blanchett arrived at the Academy Awards in a stunning nude gown from Armani, while Miller wore an embellished two-piece ensemble by Erdem for the Golden Globes.

However, these styles aren't only fit for the red carpet. For everyday fashion statements, we love these looks from Modcloth and Asos. Either dress would be perfect for a summer wedding, baby shower or even date night. This trend perfectly embodies the light, playful spirit of summer.
