Runway Trend: Velvet

When I thought of Velvet being one of this Fall's main trends the first thing that came to my mind was "oh dear this could be a huge disaster" but I have been proven wrong and that if used in the right way velvet can look very beautiful. This season designers from Fendi to Marc Jacobs revitalised the fabrics with stunning glossy colours, clever splicing and innovative burn-out techniques. The most interesting of which I thought was Christopher Kane's organza shifts appliquéd with jewel coloured velvet ribbons, set in horizontal and vertical stripes, creating a new and very beautiful effect.
