We can never get enough of flowers. They have been the symbol of beauty, power, strength and love and have been used as a sign of hope in the darkest of times. Flowers are definitely the all-time favourite trend and I just couldn’t help but wonder how they paved their way into fabrics and fashion.
Flower dresses, floral prints are said to have originated centuries ago in the East which then had its influence in the West from the Orient and Asia. Flowers were used as laces to decorate garments in the 15th century. Hence, this flower fashion has continued to inspire designers from the 15th century itself to the present day. The kind of flower dressing that I want to talk about in this blog, is a classic twist to the existing floral patterns.
Cascading of tiny flowers of various colours on apparels, accessories make it look more heavenly, elegant and poised. This can be seen very well in Kerry Parker ss18 apparel collection and it totally steals the limelight. Kerry Parker has introduced us to a new kind of Flower Dressing that incudes hand crafted floral embellishments. These blossoms are made from scratch by Indian artisans. It is a colourful foreplay of heavenly hues encrusted with pearls and gems. The entire collection reeks of opulence, one can feel royal just by wearing their pieces.
My favourites are the bralette tops. These gorgeous bralette tops are lined with florets and jewels with statement backs. It also has an amazing colour block among their bralette tops collection.
Accessories are very important when it comes to completing the look and if we have flowery accessories, it adds more freshness and elegance to the look. Embellished fishnets are a big hit this season. They are extremely beautiful and bring life to one’s entire look. The accessories with floral carnations on fishnet socks, fishnet stockings, sleek belts, chokers bring life to the heavenly body parts. Even Bollywood actress Yami Gautam was seen adorning their beautiful tulle socks and she looks extremely gorgeous in her Femina photo shoot for May’18. At the Cosmopolitan Blogger Awards, the nominees were seen donning these embellished fishnets and graphic ties with nothing but their bathroom robes. Embellished fishnets are the latest and most interesting addition to this trend. And if you haven’t checked it out yet, trust me you’re missing something very fashionably massive for your wardrobe.
Hence, it’s evident that we all are smitten by the way these Godly colourful elements of nature are that has even the designers be inspired every day to create looks that takes us aback. Even the history of use of flowers since the 15th century is remarkable to the fact that something which our ancestors used for clothing is still fashionable till today. We will, of course, see more designs and usage of flowers in fashion in the coming decades that’d lead to another new journey.
