Fridays At The Office – Halloween Edition

photo (1)

Halloween shenanigans around the office. Some of us clearly work too hard, and are looking a little thin. Others might be fans of Twin Peaks. Honestly, it’s pretty much always Halloween around here, but we’re letting a little more weird into the office today.

Happy Halloween, Urban Threadsters!

Urban Threads Runway Fashions

A chill is full in the air and fashion showcases are going on up and down runways around the world. We’re celebrating fall fashions all this week as part of our Fall Sale, and we thought we’d do a quick roundup of Urban Threads fashions that really have walked the runway, from a number of very talented fashion designers who use machine embroidery as one of their tools of the trade.

These stunning fashion images are courtesy of Jenny Jeshko for the Mercedes-Benz Prague Fashion Weekend, Tim+Thom for the Red Dress Collection, Alt.Kilt for NY Fashion Week, Ivy Frozen for the Japan Expo 2014 and Scoundrelle’s Keep for the fall Pomme de Sang show.

From home machines to runway ready, machine embroidery is finding a new place and new audiences all over the world. We love seeing what these superstars of fashion do with Urban Threads designs.

If you want a piece of fall fashion to yourself, craft it up at home with the Fall Fashion Sale, going on now through the weekend. We may not all get a piece of the runway, but we can look like we do!

What’s the one thing you wish you knew when you started your store?

I wish I would have had a better idea of how to price items to be competitive, but not overpriced. Also, I wish I would have done a little more research on a shop name that would evolve with my ever changing products!

The “She Believed She Could” design was originally a freebie, and has spun off so many cute projects since its release. I’m especially in love with this version from allindastitch because it’s so simple and chic, with that chevron background and that cute frame. Sometimes less is more!
