A to Z of Fashion – Paper-bag waistbands

Share

Paper-bag waistbands are, actually, a contradiction — both refreshingly loose and using extra fabric. Imagine, if you will, a paper bag full of sweets twisted shut. Now turn this into fabric and instead of the twist, add a belt. Paper-bag waistlines can be both high and feminine or low slung, echoing the spirit of Katherine Hepburn. They get their name from the gathering technique and the fabric over the belt hooks.

Happy New Fashion Year

Share

Hello everyone

2015 is coming to the end and we have all achieved a lot and maybe not so much of what we wanted look these up. So I’m keen to know what  your fashion goals for the coming year are. My goals are to revamp my wardrobe and making sure at least 50% of the apparel and accessories are firstly; Made in Zimbabwe by Zimbabweans, secondly made in Africa and lastly by artisans in other Third World countries. My desire is to continue promoting talent from Zimbabwe and Africa and work hard to develop and grow the vision of Zimbabwe Fashion Network and a Zimbabwe Fashion Renaissance.

By God’s Grace it is my aspiration to bring out my creativity to the fore and produce some capsule collections I have beeen working on.

So what are yours? Please leave a comment below.

Wishing you a Happy , Creative and Prosperous 2016.

A to Z of Fashion – Napping

napping napping1

Napping has nothing to do with a light rest in the afternoon. In fashion, napping is a finishing technique, where the short fibres are lifted from the fabric surface to create a ‘nap’. It can be achieved by brushing or rubbing fabrics or, alternatively, using a machine covered with fine wire teeth, which pick and raise loose fibres, fusing the ends together so nothing frays.
