The Velvet Story Ft. KOOVS Fashion

If you have been noticing there’s an unusual amount of velvet being used on the runways lately. This fabric has always been a classic staple in the fashion world, but this year it seems to be one of the “it” fabrics for Fall/Winter 2016.

Velvet has gained a special place in the classic fashions of other decades as well. For example, it fit in perfectly with the glamorous vibe of the 1970’s. Additionally, the 1980’s and 90’s had a love affair with crushed velvet and devore, and both were frequently worn by pop culture icons of both decades.

Nowadays, velvet has been popping up quite frequently in many different collections. Crushed velvet has been popular in the midst of the trending 90’s revival, and many designers have been giving their classic or innovative takes on the textiles. Soft, drapey velvets in sweet pastels have been trending, and stiff, structured fabrics in strong colors such as bottle green or navy will always be a staple.

The Sequin Story Ft. TFNC London

What comes in mind whenever we hear a sequin dress? Party, New Years-Eve and Discotheques.

But it has a very deep history behind it.The origins of the word sequin can be found, in fact, in both the Arabic word sikka and the Italian zecchino, both of which mean ‘coin’ or ‘the mint’. The history of using coins to decorate garments has long been linked to the wearer’s wealth; in the 13th century they were often sewn onto garments as a precautionary measure to keep them close to the body.

By the 17th century, however, this tradition had taken on a purely decorative function with coins replaced by metallic discs known as ‘spangles’. Since then, the sequin has manifested itself in a number of different ways, spanning myriad fashion genres. Here we chart its journey from practical to decorative, considering the 1920s flappers inspired by King Tutankhamun, and finishing up with the 1970s disco era so resonant in Pugh’s paean to embellishments.

According to Smithsonian Mag sequins are here to stay (and who knows what they’ll be made from 50 years from now). Yes, we expect to see them on a New Year’s Eve dress, but we’ve also grown accustomed to seeing them emblazoned on a basic white T-shirt or pair of flats. With accessibility comes diluted trends and with that comes, well, shapeless Uggs boots covered in what was once a symbol of attention-grabbing glamour.

What I am wearing here is a short silver grey sequins body-fit dress by TFNC London perfect for your new-years night, paired up with black stilettos , bold lips and smoky eyes.The make-up totally compliments the entire outfit making it more sexy and outgoing.
