Theme of the Month: “Denim Reloaded”






TREND

This month we’re totally devoted to denim. Come to think of it, when have we not been? Denim’s been having a fashion moment ever since James Dean’s bad-boy character wore them like a cool cowboy in Rebel Without A Cause (1955). A bit later, Marilyn Monroe’s character in The Misfits adopted the lifestyle of a cowgirl, putting this functional-yet-fabulous fabric on the radar for fashion-conscious women. By the ’80s, a look that had started off as a subversive counter-culture statement was suddenly elevated to unimaginable heights of glamour by the luxury designer brands. The net result today is that we can’t get enough of it. This summer, it’s hotter than ever. But don’t wear denim straight off the rack—give it some attitude: Customize your outfits and accessories to create your own signature look: design a paint-splatter effect, sprinkle them with crystals, or try a combination of both. Then nail the trend, literally, with true-blue nail art to match!

TECHNIQUES

Paint-splattered denim: Release your inner Jackson Pollock! Do use fabric paint, which is designed to dry on the surface, rather than soak in. Remember, different tools give different effects, so test a few until you get the look you want: flick paint with your fingers (wearing disposable rubber gloves), a paint brush, even a Popsicle stick, then stand back and look at the results.
Sewing: This super-easy method of decorating your clothes and accessories gives you unlimited creative possibilities. Just attach the Swarovski crystals of your choice to whatever textile or other material you like, either by hand or with a standard sewing machine. As well as beads and pearls, sew-on stones are perfect for applying to fabric, too.
