From nature to magazines and everything in between, inspiration for interior design can come from absolutely anywhere – including fashion. With the recent passing of London, New York, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks, discover how these designer brands can inspire your own interiors with the help of Charles Parsons.


Founded in Milan, Italy in 1913, Prada has earned its place as one of the main leaders in high-end, designer clothing. At Milan Fashion Week, the fashion giant showcased its highly anticipated Spring/Summer 2018 collection. The models wore outfits comprising of mixed prints and textures – leopard, anime cartoons and floral embroidery, just to name a few. They showcased how clashing prints can look good if done in moderation.

Don't be afraid to mix prints in your own living spaces. Try Charles Parsons' Adriano pattern upholstery fabric in red as a statement seating area, with our leopard-print-inspired Edie upholstery fabric in dark blue for cushions with impact and pizzazz.

House of Holland

It turns out that millennial pink isn't going anywhere anytime soon thanks to British fashion designer Henry Holland. His Spring/Summer 2018 London Fashion Week show took on a cowboy meets space-age feel with funky shapes and patterns gracing his garments. The main colour theme featured pastel blues and pinks, with contrasting orange pops – great for a fun, spring-time feel.

Our outdoor Sanctuary collection features bold, geometric shapes reminiscent of House of Holland's show. Try pairing shades Oceanic and Tigerlily together for even more fashion week fun! Using such a statement colour scheme for your outdoor furniture helps to brighten your garden space, even on the most miserable of days.

Anna Sui

Nothing says 'spring' like cool, sheer fabrics, and that's exactly what Anna Sui brought to her New York Fashion Week Spring 2018 show. Her collection featured delicate and flowing layering pieces that were reminiscent of the summer of love and bohemian eras. Bring a piece of Anna Sui to your own home by introducing sheer drapery.

Charles Parson's Seraphina Fudge has a subtle floral pattern and the right amount of transparency to give your living space a real whimsical feel.
