Rich looks prevail at High Point
April 28, 2003,
Luscious fabrics, rich embellishments and lots of deluxe trims and stitchery were the fashion statements among the home textiles exhibitors at the International Home Furnishings Market here earlier this month.
As usual, decorative trimmings and embellishments continued to be mainstays of the fashion statements; but for this market they were used more sparingly. Designers tended to a single, absolutely special trim or embellishment rather than a combination of many trims on one item. Hemstitching and cutwork also served as fashion accents.
