Spring 2011 Catwalk Collections Rework Traditional Homespun Art

Traditional crafts are in for a big transformation, and it’s a glamorously modern one. From Roberto Cavalli’s grand tassels to Holly Fulton and Betty Jackson's short tassels on skirts and jerseys, all are bestowing a distinct piece of brilliance to the craft world that is evident in the designers' fashion spring/summer collections.

Found in these collections are tasseled evening gowns, feathered fitted skirts and fringed adornments that will work wonders for fashion-loving artistic types. Unlike many of the ordinary spring collections, the craft idea shows how to take your collection to a whole new level, and many fashion giants' wide embrace of the crafts proves this.

In the video above, Nina Ricci captures a piece of the neoteric craft innovation in her Spring/Summer 2011 collection with a pink dress made mostly out of pink feathers and other fabulous craft-inspired haute couture.
