One of the trends spotted on the runways this season was tie dye. Not the old school 70's psychedelic throwback, but a much more modern and interesting tie dye. It was seen in Proenza Schouler's Spring/Summer 2010 collection (left) as well as Zac Posen's collection for Target (right).

Do-it-yourself tie dye seemed like a right of passage for every kid growing up. You'd tie off plain white t-shirts and dip them into bowls with all different colours. It always came out looking like a bad acid trip. It was more for fun than for fashion. But Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler, along with the help of Martha Stewart, are trying to turn DIY tie dye into something we can all wear. Check out this video of the design duo getting schooled by Martha in all things tie dye.

I will be heading to my local Michael's tomorrow to purchase that spray paint so I can get dying right away.

DIY Tie Dye...It's a good thing.
