The fringe – a very special kind of thread.
It doesn’t matter what they are made of: cloth, leather or metal – fringes are the trend du jour. The fine decorative thread is one of the oldest ways of underlining the unique style of fine materials. At first, fringes were to be found on carpets or sofas, but soon enough they appeared in the world of fashion. In the Middle Ages hair styles were decorated with them, for example with a fringe braid attached to a hair circlet. Later, Native Americans decorated their clothes and works of art like pipes and tomahawks with long threads and said they had a special and mystical meaning. And also modern Western clothing, derived from the cowboys, plays with a whole lot of leather fringes and braids. The fashionable heyday of fringes began in the 1920’s with the classic Charleston dresses. These short dresses were covered all over, sometimes with many layers of fringes that were swinging around during the dances, which made them look ever so dynamic.
The fringe dress – some swing in your wardrobe.
It seems that the light fabric thread has disappeared for quite a while, but now fringes are back in so many ways. No matter where you look – swinging fringes, for some seasons now, both winter and summer. Fringes cannot be missed in modern wardrobes anymore: no matter what kind of fashion type you may be, there is a fringe dress for every taste: oversized with a trendy bohemian style for the festival season, earthy colours in an Ethno-look for modern hippies or elegant cocktail dresses with most elegant tassel belts – fringes look great in any kind of style. That’s why you can find the decorative fabrics on dresses – but of course also on kimonos, vests, cardigans or even coats.
