The unlikely star of this winter’s show has undoubtedly got to be velvet. When it was announced to be one of the big trends for winter 2010 women across the nation screwed their faces up in distaste, and the fashion savvy were struck down with fear and despair.
In a pleasant turn of events, however, there seems to be no evidence of bad 80’s crushed velvet in stores. Wherever you turn, the fabric has been cut into sleek, sexy body con styles and flirtatious frocks. In fact velvet can be described as nothing less than luxe, and what better way to spend this festive time of year than in a sumptuous velvet dress.
