Gentle Fawn @ KNOWSHOW

Aug 11, 2012
Dressing for days at the beach and nights in the city inspired the design team at Gentle Fawn for Summer 2013. The collection shown at the KNOWSHOW event in Vancouver was a cool blend of boho festival and folktale but with a confident urban edge. The style of iconic folk singer Joni Mitchell mixed with the dark swagger of Maryanne Faithful.
The new range being shown for Spring/ Summer 2013 is full of feminine pieces; maxi skirts kimono sleeve tops, a great mix of lightweight jersey, chiffon, lace, and even some crochet details. Basics include stretchy tanks and bralettes. Colour for S/S'13 is very wearable and fresh; powdery pastel shades of sunflower blue, pale yellow, lilac, coral pink as well as richer shades of teal and garnet red.
New twists on classic stripe and bold print really turns up the heat on their S/S '13 offering; 50's jungle safari, paisley, botanical pattern, abstract animal prints, and a large scale 'digital 'Navajo' print used on a oversized tank. KNOWSHOW is a bi-annual tradeshow catering to Canada's top lifestyle, fashion and action sports retailers and brands. Each January and August wholesalers of selected brands and their reps premier new products to the nations best retailers and media during a three day show held at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
