RAD PLAID


When I see plaid I get the warm fuzzies, feel cozy, and want to bundle up by the fire with a good book.   Plaid has been out of the loop for awhile and has returned with huge popularity here in the Northwest.  Fall predicts a demand for pattern, and plaid is leading the way.

This criss- cross print started out  as a blue-collar trademark, and edged its way into high fashion through the ‘90s grunge-rock movement. This trend started in Seattle, and moved across the United States.  A well known designer Vivienne Westwood defined plaid for the punk scene.
