SS ’20 The Raffia Weave: From the Designer’s Desk

While sustainable and ethical are clearly the call of the season, there’s a new fabric on the ramps – Raffia. An African inspiration for this Spring, this trend was not just for clothing, but all accessories too! Giving it a head-to-toe look, Oscar de la Renta added bags and dresses with floral patterns while Dolce and Gabbana dyed the fabric and created dresses and skirts. Raffia took a turn this season from its conventional methods and adopted a modern silhouette. While this fabric trend was moving all across the ramps and red carpets, our designer too, was feeling inspired. Here’s a little behind-the-scenes! What is this material exactly? Raffia material basically comes from the Raffia palm leaves found in the Madagascar region. These leaves are first dried, created into strands and woven together to make a fabric. Raffia is also known as Kuba clothing in Africa and was traditionally woven…

Tiziano Guardini showcased his Atlantis inspiration with wavy patterns in cruelty-free silk and impressions of the sea.  On the other hand, Marine Serre incorporated recycled plastic for her theme. From accessories to clothes, everything was recycled. While all the ramps had a thing to say and contribute, we too were inspired to take a stand! So here we are sitting down with…
