This unusual ancient tradition dates back to the early Victorian ages in which a mourner would gather hair locks of a decreased loved one & commemorate them by enclosing human hair into brooches, pendants, pockets, bangles etc. This was a popular practice & acted as source of sacred memorial for the mourning individual, often symbolizing the attempt to prolong the life of the decreased. By the same token, these original antiques have gained plenty of sentimental value over the years & can be sought at very high price tag. Designing replicates have become more common through avant-grade stylized approaches which include the incorporation of strands of pony hair over human hair and the addition of wrapping/coiling, looping & attaching of flashy metal clasps & chains. Squeamish yet? just think of it as the new fabric of life, hair never looked so good.

Remember back in the days, when your Nana, Gramms etc. used to patch the holes in your ripped jeans??? Well, we might not need Gramm's assistance to fix our gaps & gashed garments today but this vintage method of mending is beginning to reappear in many designer's collections and is steadily being embraced by fashion's elite. By the same token, patchwork requires a steady hand ( or sewing machine for that matter) and a keen eye for assembly. The result- the mixing & matching fabrics in same hues & tones come together to form strikingly unitified pieces. Why not create your own polychromatic look by mixing & stitching various textural fabrics and rearrange the pieces to help animate, enhance & diversify a dull pieces in your wardrobe.

Under the sea, a vast landscape of infinite life is unfamilar & unexplored territory to many. However, these oceanic inspired creations have emerged above sea level being incorporated into everything from house furnishings to culinary cuisine. The erupt fascination with aquaculture has given light to nautical fashion in its progesssive steps. It has allowed for the experimentation of artifical brackerish bodies, fragile invertebrates & the finned alike; all impart of conceptualizing this new wave of a whim slowly transpiring.
