It’s a little known fact that it takes a Herculean effort to produce a trimmings collection. From concept, choosing yarns and color combinations, engineering and fabricating with multiple modifications to final sample approvals, a collection can take six months to two years to launch. Like their fabric counterpart, trimmings collections debut in the fall and spring each year, usually to less fanfare, although they can be the supertools of a designer and fabricator. After seeing these stunning fall launches, I think you’ll agree that these trimmings may take center stage. zz
