Sumptuous velvet for the party season


sumptuous velvet for the party seasonTraditionally velvet has rich and opulant connotations. Worn by royalty for ceremonial occasions, velvet is lush and often ornate. It has now gone mainstream and can be found not only in designer collections but also readily available on the high street. Although velvet is still used for cocktail and special occasion dresses it is now being worn for everyday and casual evenings.

Velvet is a woven tufted fabric with short dense pile giving it that soft silky feel. It can be made from either synthetics or natural fibres. It adapts well to a variety of styles from the traditional smoking jacket to soft fluid trousers. It is even popping up on shoes and handbags this season.
