2016 Denim Fashion Trend Forecast

I'm just back from Magic Market Week, where I visited the Sourcing area for an in-depth look at the Aztex Denim trend galleries. This is where fabric mills, fiber companies, and garment manufacturers present the newest trends and innovations in denim. As we head into the last quarter of 2015, denim is playing an increasingly more important role in the fashion scene. In fact, there's been a recent spike in the denim market. I witnessed this firsthand as I walked the trade show floor, where I spotted array of denim on display: culottes, button-front tops, frayed crop tops, A-line skirts, pinafore dresses, 1970s flared jeans, utilitarian handbags, and just about everything imaginable that could be made of denim.
