Trend Report: 5 Pieces of DIY Inspiration from Fall 2013 Fashion Week


Are you an avid follower of the news pouring out of fashion week shows around the work? I’ve been enjoying the reports on Fashionista and other blogs. My favorite pictures are the close-up shots from the runway where you can really see the beautiful details and the street style shoots. Here are some of the trends that I think we’ll be seeing pop up in DIY and craft sites soon.
