New York, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks–No matter the silhouette or whether for day or evening, styles marching down the Spring 2014 runways were blooming big time. But these florals weren’t in prints or pattern (although there were plenty of those too),  but rather appliques. From dimensional buds to lacy flowers to bold patches stitched over unlikely plaids or stripes, these flowers are taking a once-crafty approach and putting a high-style spin on it.
