'Tis The Season For Velvet

'Tis The Season For Velvet

We have always been obsessed with this truly sumptuous fabric. Not only is it a great textile to keep one warm and snug during those winter months, it also creates an extremely flattering, elegant and sensuous silhouette. Whether velvet is the main element of a dress or shown on a cuff of a sleeve or a collar, this fabric makes one feel sophisticated and desired. Or perhaps velvet is seen on your favourite accessory, those small touches complete your chosen outfit. The perfect Christmas gift, there is always a place for velvet to shine under those festive lights.
