Photographic print skirts

 While recently doing my imaginary online shopping for my style posts I noticed that there are a lot of photographic printed skirts on the high street, particularly on pencil skirts. These conversational prints range from French chateaus(boohoo) and enhanced florals(River Island) to astronauts(shopjeen) and fairgrounds(Topshop). Below are some of my top picks from the high street/online retailers...

Top row left to right:Topshop branches skirt(£28.00), Topshop fairground skirt(£28.00), Topshop traffic monochrome skirt(£28.00), River Island floral skirt(£25.00), Boohoo French chateau skirt(£15.00).
Bottom row left to right: Mary Katrantzou(£702.00), Clover canyon(£118), Ted Baker(£109.00),£21.97) Missguided  palm print skirt(£8.99)and Nastygal(£88.29).


Fabitoria is the digital fashion label of Taiwanese duo Fabiana and Victoria. Founded in 2012, this fledgling fashion brand already has successful stores on Etsy and ASOS marketplace. Fabitoria takes inspiration from culture, landscapes, design and the natural world and combines these aspects with digitally enhanced photography to create surreal wearable works of art. The high resolution photographs in this collection of vividly coloured skirts enable the wearer to be transported to another place/time period/culture. In my opinion that's the beauty of fashion, through creativity we can turn fantasy into reality, how much more exciting would the world be if we abandoned minimalism and embraced digital prints such as these!

My favourite items in Fabitoria's SS13 collection are the garments which have prints built up from a variety of photographic images layered on top of each with different coloured filters applied to them. This is something I want to take into consideration when working on my collaboration.
