Mixed Prints and Fashion Designers
Mix prints allows fashion designers to be really creative. Fashion labels such as Red Valentino, Tracy Reece, Milly, Magaschoni, Elle Tahari, M Missoni, Michael Kors, Tony Burch, Lafayette 148 New York, Diane von Furstenberg, Kate Spade New York, and Rebecca Taylor to name a few have included mixed print styles in their current collections. From a cost stand point, the cost of creating a mix print styles depends on if the print is combined into one print in terms of when it goes on the fabric or whether the two prints are separate fabrics being sewed together. Of course the last method is the most expensive. For new designers who are producing in small quantities this method can get really expensive because there is a certain minimum of fabric that has to be dyed.
