AFRICAN WAX PRINTS


I have a design forecast! 
I always get a vibe on an up-and-coming textile design or maybe its just that I'm feeling inspired by these designs?
I'm really enjoying researching African textiles and I can absolutely see how these designs could be utilized into todays home.
You heard it here first haha

THE ZIGZAG HAS PEAKED!

The zigzag is taking on a new dimension, its much more then just the solid two colored zag we're used to seeing in interiors, on rugs, drapes etc its much more abstract, disjointed and with Technicolor's and all the colors of the rainbow AND I can't seem to get these jagged, triangles, peaks, zigzags patterns out of my head. Whenever I'm perusing the internet I find it on Textiles, Art, Photography. I've even started designing some sort of zigzag, peaky thing for my own home but I ask who started it? It must come from fashion, Missoni maybe or was it the Art first? If anyone can enlighten me as to why I am addicted to these shapes that would be great, 
cheers!
