The article reports that an expansion of the movement embracing the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s design heritage will propel contemporary fabric designing into new interpretations in decorative fabrics. At Showtime in High Point, North Carolina, this week and on through the year, what many designers are calling 'pop' contemporary will be the highlight of new lines. But most agree, it will be a 21st century rendition of the somewhat quirky and distinctive design statements of the past mid-century. Patterns will be simpler, more graphic sleeker. The apparel influence will see more boucles, textures and dimensional effects.
