Paloma Floral in Four Color Ways

My new Paloma Floral textile design features vintage inspired blooms. My peony floral painting in this new design tells a romantic story that's perfect for spring and summer collections.

Available in four distinct color palettes, this design has a vintage vibe well suited for sophisticated womenswear in more subtle pastel color combinations and the brighter tones for the younger end of the market. Lilac is definitely coming into its own for S/S 18. I love how it transforms the idea of using a pastel color without overloading the palette with saccharine hues.  Which color way do you prefer?

In the past seasons a white or dark ground has been the key trend for florals in the past few seasons . I love the newest trend update that includes colored backgrounds. In my Paloma print I feature a large-scale bloom types of a painterly bouquet to create an elegant botanical print.
