0

Velvet turnaround in fashion

Noticed a lot of velvet on runways and stores these days? Good if you have and already have some idea about it, and it’s still okay if you haven’t because you’re still not going away without any information.

So, without any delay let’s get the facts clear – ‘Velvet is the Trend!

Next in fact list – The fabric Story – Inside – Out

While 2016 was closing velvet was rising and within next few months the only thing we’d see is more rise in the trend of fashion and velvet. This fabric has always been a classic staple in the fashion world, but this year it seems to be one of the “it” fabrics. While velvet hasn’t exactly been the most popular material over the past few years, it seems to be making an exemplary comeback. It has added a fresh texture and hint of luxury to the collections that use it, and we cannot resists ignoring it – we’re becoming velvet eyed.

Let History Talk about Velvet

Most commonly believed to have originated from Eastern culture, pieces of velvet featuring low, untrimmed piles have been found in China dating back to several old dynasties, including the Qin (circa 221-206 B.C.E.) and the Western Han (206 B.C.E.- 23 C. E.).

Italy was the first European country to create a velvet industry for itself, yielding wild success to the cities involved in the craft if velvet-making. From the 12th to 18th centuries, these areas were perhaps the largest velvet producers, and subsequently supplied the material to all of Europe. It was extremely popular with wealthy buyers, and used in many luxury items such as furniture, clothing, upholstery, curtains- even wallpaper.

Velvet – The Present Day

Velvet in the current scenario is one of the most widely used fabrics in the fashion industry, taking the trend of fashion to next higher level with every dress that is made from it. Crushed velvet has been popular in the middle of the trending 90’s revival, and many designers have been giving their archetypal or revolutionary takes on the textiles even today. 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.

Believe it or not – The Fashion Industry is Blooming!

While there’s no chance for you to not believe it, but even if there is little I have to state that everything about the fashion industry is getting better every day. The newest trend in the market is that of introducing velvet yet again – once more for the love of amazing dresses and fashion.

So, hold your breath and choose velvet for the next fashion dress you’re buying.

Prevalence Of IBD Cases Among Children

Prevalence Of IBD Cases Among Children

Although the current statistics fail to provide a comprehensive idea, nearly one among the 210 children in UK alone suffer either from Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, the two widely detected forms of inflammatory bowel disease conditions. Though both the autoimmune conditions can be managed and curbed with the aid of medications such as corticosteroids and Anti-TNF drugs, as the illness is detected during childhood, the impacts that one has to deal with later-on can often be significantly distressing. The outcomes include simple digestive disorders and life threatening colorectal cancer as well.
