Fashionista NOW: Embroidery Fashion Trend

Next fashion trend for Raya: Hello Embroidery!

Embroidery made it as one of the trends for Fall/Winter 2013. Intricate designs by fashion designers Prabal Gurung, Suno and Red Valentino were showcased earlier this year.

And while we do not experience Fall or Winter here at all in Malaysia, there’s no reason not to sport the trend for Raya!

Not only do you get to wear embroidered kebaya and baju kurung, there are loads of modern embroidered alternatives to sweep you off your feet.

Did you know that embroidery started off as a practical method of tailoring, patching, mending and reinforcing clothing? Well now you know.

Evliya Celebi, a 17th century Turkish traveler had referred to embroidery as the “craft of the two hands” and because it was considered a sign of high social standing within Muslim societies of the the Medieval Islam period, it became a prominent art.

The art of embroidery from cities like Cairo, Istanbul and Damascus were seen decorating flags, calligraphy, robes, tunics, shoes, slippers, pouches, uniforms, handkerchiefs and more.

So, if classic is the mood you’d like to exude for Eid, a tease of embroidery in your wardrobe could very well be your thing.
