Marie Claire (South Africa) - - FASHION REPORT -

Lux­u­ri­ous fab­rics are get­ting a makeover, with silk rib­bons, geo­met­ric bead­ing on sheer ma­te­ri­als and laser-cut­ting gain­ing pop­u­lar­ity. Eye-catch­ing fring­ing

cre­ates fluid move­ment and shim­mer­ing ma­te­ri­als em­u­late mir­rored and glis­ten­ing sur­faces. In­tri­cate hand­wo­ven fab­rics in bas­ket weave, hound­stooth and var­ie­gated ar­ti­san pat­terns will also

add a pleas­ing tac­til­ity. Keep an eye out for se­quin-, pearl- and bead-en­crusted knit­ted ap­pliqué. We’re also look­ing for­ward to shiny tape fring­ing and three-di­men­sional

yarn tufted and beaded dec­o­ra­tions that will adorn sim­ple sil­hou­ettes to give them a dec­o­ra­tive up­date.
