Here's what I've found:
1) The aptly named Gorgeous Fabrics. The lady who runs this place has an interesting story, and some lovely lovely fabrics. Here's just a taste of what you can find there:
Catlin, if you are reading this, you should check on her rayon challis selections!
2) Mood Fabrics. Yes, the Project Runway Mood Fabrics. Yes, the store that has this beauty:
This one is a black on black matelasse, a fabric I had never even heard of three days ago, but my fabric guide assures me it's real. It's like tapestry where the design is woven into the fabric instead of printed on, and the matelasse is a dress weight fabric. Here's what EmmaOneSock says about it:
An absolutely stunning matelasse weave from a top French mill, made for a very famous designer... The design of this fabric is modern, fashion forward, and the quality SUPERB. The weave has a beautiful pointed circle graphic design with some reflective and some matte areas in a black on black. The fabric has a puckery textured surface, and is a light suiting weight with lovely drape, but also with body for tailoring. Perfect for a suit, jacket, sheath, mod tunic to wear with leggings and boots, skirt, etc. Dry cleaning recommended.
I swooned when I saw it. And then there's this black with silver streaks ruffle knit:
