Derby Style Fabric by Melissa Mortenson for Riley Blake Designs

A few years ago after we got home from the Kentucky Oaks, ideas for a fabric line started swirling in my head.  You see I had spent the last two weeks surrounded by brightly colored pants, gingham shirts, polka dots, bow ties and all kinds of southern charm.  Here in Louisville, the weeks leading up to the Derby are some of the most fabulous all year with many events where it’s perfectly appropriate (and expected) to put on your best dapper duds.

I spent the entire weekend dreaming of bow ties. Pink bow ties, blue bow ties, yellow bow ties, stripes polka dots, houndstooth and seersucker.

…. and Derby Style Fabric was born…

It was released in January 2015 with Riley Blake Designs.
