Ombre Trend Part One: Fashion

The 'Ombre' trend has always interested me and played a big part in the initial part of my research for my final major project at university. I found many gorgeous dip-dyed garment, so I thought I'd share the great trend on my blog. 

Dries Van Noten Spring/Summer 2010 mixed both extreme and abrubt ombre transitions with pale and subtle transitions with the use of heavy colour and pale shades. Also, the use of faded print within the dip-dye is a wonderful twist on the trend.

Jonathan Saunders had one amazing piece of dip-dye in his Spring/Summer 2012 collection with a beautiful pastel blue and yellow mix for a simple summer dress.

Ann Demeulemeester opted for a darker ombre look with deep, misty charcoal tones of black, brown, grey and white using a beautiful sheer fabric. The Spring/Summer 2012 collection was all in all a really gorgeous look.

Even online shop ASOS have some great, more affordable dip-dye items! I personally adore the ombre blazer/trouser combo with the white to acid green fade. Also, the ombre fringing trend looks gorgeous, as seen on the t-shirt below.
