Tweed as a Fashion Fabric in 2005

Examples of couture Tweed.  Note the variety of weave, colour and texture of the tweed fabric, imagine how they could be tailored into suits.


These tweed fashion fabric samples are ends of couture ranges from Linton Tweeds UK 2004 range. (Link below)

Click thumbnails to see the textural quality and yarn slubs in the samples.  The pictures can also be used as a source of inspiration by those who have design brief projects for story boards at college or are using those in my ebook fashion illustration.  The chart also shows some plain samples to help fashion design students with colour schemes of coordinates.

These samples give you an idea of typical fashion fabric tweeds currently in fashion. These fabrics were sold as end of line lengths for about 15-25 a metre.  More samples are shown on a previous tweeds page.
