Hello everyone and can I still say Happy New Year?🙈 Since it’s my first post here in the year 2020.
How has the new year been so far? Hope you are smashing your new year goals already?
Well, it’s 2020 and a lot is happening in the fashion/fabric scene especially in Nigeria and Africa generally. So if you are a lover of African fashion, get ready for a dramatic turn as we are bringing new Fabrics and fashion houses are churning out amazing pieces which I will be sharing from time to time here.
So today, I’m sharing one of the new entrants that made way into our fashion scene late last year and it’s taking over at the moment because of the versatility of the fabric. It’s the Lamé Fabric 💥
This is a shiny fabric made with metallic threads. It’s lustrous, smooth, with a fluid drape, semi-sheer/opaque.
Lamé comes in different varieties, depending on the composition of the other threads in the fabric. Common examples are tissue lamé, hologram lamé and pearl lamé.
So if the memo says sparkle and shine, Hollywood glamour or you just want to shine bright like diamonds to your next event, the Lamé fabric is your best bet.
And it’s so versatile that you can make amazing dress styles in different lengths with it like wrap dresses, Kaftans, even our ever green iro and buba, boubous, jumpsuits and many more that I will be showing you samples of but first let’s take a look at the fabric:
Now let’s see some gorgeous style inspirations on these beautiful ladies creatively designed from this stunning fabric:
Metallic threads should never be exposed to high heat in a clothes dryer or while ironing. Use a clothes steamer to remove wrinkles and be sure to keep the steamer nozzle at least 12 inches away from the fabric surface. If you must use an iron to remove wrinkles, use a low heat setting and always press from the wrong side while using a pressing cloth between the iron’s surface and the fabric.
Good news is some fashion brands like @funkeadepoju has some of these styles as ready to wear which you can just order for yourselves.
But if you need the fabric to make one of these or a totally different design depending on the look you want. Fabric is available in different colors as seen in the pictures and videos above.
