Your numerous responses to the October skirt color choice was enormously inspiring. Even though I have to leave to my girlfriends wedding in a few minutes, I want to get out another post with more color choices and ideas inspired by you.

Seeing that it is so hard to settle on one color, I thought that it may be nice to offset the pleated detail by adding a trim in a different color to its bottom.

‘We tried out a few color variation for you to check out above with some more swatch ideas…I think we are getting closer!

    I really like the fourth color down (is that magenta?) with the black trim, but with trim along the bottom hem instead of the vertical trim on the side. I can’t wait to see the final result!

    The skirt on the bottom right is the most striking to me. I think the contrasting colors add more interest— it really ‘pops’!

    My choices would be either the burgundy one with black trim, except move the horizontal trim to the hem. Which would be like my other favourite the purple/blue one with the red trim, bottom right.

    The burgundy color with the black tweed but I could do without the horizontal trim across the skirt.

    My favorites are the purple with black trim (that’s my favorite trim placement also), and the medium red with black trim right above it.

    I like the top color (first from above) with the trimming of the lowest right one.

    Haha, juebejue, we don’t mean to tease..I am always myself so excited about all future patterns, it often killed me that I wasn’t able to share before starting to blog. JoB, this is a preview and an opportunity to partake in the design process of our fall collection. The pattern will come online this fall>

    Very stylish with the dark tweed trim, almost chanel-ish. I especially like the top left, more slimming without the horizontal lines. BTW is the pattern available???
