Fashion Trend Alert: Lamé Fabric

In our studio we’ve seen the latest fashion trend alert first hand and its lamé fabric. See the beautiful garments that have come through our doors and have proved the rule.

Fashion Trend Alert: Lamé Fabric

Metallics make a shiny statement during the festive season. Whereas, lamé fabric is often overlooked or avoided because it can be delicate and subject to pulls. Luckily, we're here to repair your finery in time for the latest fashion trend.
 
The use of lamé fabrics has been fuelled by the AW14 trend of futuristic fashion statements. We, for some, are glad to see it back in action.
 
Here's some of our favourites. Not that we’ll be saying goodbye to other metallics like this Issa top with the Midas touch.

Dior Dress

The attraction of lamé fabric is that it makes a statement all on its own. It attracts the eye and often clings to the silhouette.
 
This silver Dior dress is a beautiful example of lamé in action. At a glance, the fabric is recognisable and eye-catching.
 
To accessorise such a garment it’s best to keep it simple and let the outfit speak for itself. Then you’ll have the perfect combination for making a splash at any winter soiree.

Stylist, Daniella Marks also shared this array of lamé seen during London Fashion Week SS15. The Richard Nicoll collection show how to dress this fashion trend.
 
Sheer fabrics offer a quick and easy way to dress up lamé whilst layering-up this winter. At the same time elegant long evening dress rules still apply.
 
If you’re looking for a casual alternative, however, Stylecaster recommends playing it safe with heavier metallic fabrics. Tuxedo trousers, bomber jackets and flashy heels will give a nod to this fashion trend and make any street style look stand out.
