How to choose quality textures?

Base of clothes consists of textures so it is very important to get know its characteristics better in purpose to learn to choose quality texture.

Today, on textures market is huge supply of mixture textures ( 45-55% cotton, rest are various artificial textures ) and artificial textures. The main reason for that is lower quantity of natural resources for production of natural textures. Still, from full supply we should try to find if not clothes made from natural textures then at least with smaller percentage of mix with artificial textures. In natural textures pertain cotton, silk, linen, viscose, wool, leather, till in artificial textures pertain all compounds made from chemical and industrial manufacturing such as various synthetics fibers, polyester, poliamid, gum, shiny textures and other artificial mixtures.

Why is it important to educate or learn more about materials from which our clothes are produced, and we buy/receive and wear? Because of three reasons: healthful, hygienic and esthetic. Healthful, because our skin has to breath and get enough oxygen for normal function, not to sweat too much when also get out bad smell till to have some allergies, skin problems and diseases. Second reason is hygienic means on which way you take care of textures as also hygiene of your body. And the third reason is esthetic, how materials react on atmospherics and on our bodies after some time period.

How to make difference between natural and artificial textures? Through their characteristics. Even though, today manufacturing is becoming more and more technologically accomplished in that manner that even texture experts can’t recognize difference between them, still below the hand you can feel the difference. I had that luck that this knowledge about textures that I have today, I got from childhood, and I grow up and develop with it. Because of that, I gladly share it with you.:) Natural textures are soft, pleasant and don’t scratch below the hand. Body can breath under them, you don’t sweat much, there are no unpleasant smells and all because body normally function. You can’t feel any scratch or unpleasant feeling on your skin and there are no skin diseases. I recommend, especially for underwear and socks ( items that go directly on our skin ) to be made of mixtures with minimum 55-60% of cotton or from pure natural textures.  Artificial textures, in comparison with natural, are rough, scratch or make disruption of pleasant feeling below hand and often are shiny and very elastic. It’s very warm under them, we sweat a lot and smell badly. Itching, redness and allergy are most of the time their faithful followers as also possibility of developing skin diseases. They should use rarely, not directly on skin and in mixture with natural textures in percentage not bigger than 45%.

All of this above serve us to better recognize quality item made from quality material, through his persistence, unchangeability in length and width with period of time till fashion designer’s precise construction and skilled hands that sewing it, stitch, seam, thread route, etc. That theme know much better my colleagues, fashion designers.:)

I hope that this text will be useful and that will open one new world about textures to you. To be aware of things around you and on you, what you put on, everyone need from time to time.

Style vs Fashion

Always rivals or standing next to each other!? I was never attracted by fashion, at least not on that way that people immediately think of when they say that word ( fashion = beauty, esthetics, luxury, clothing, make up and other shallow things ), but one side of fashion called creativity did and always will attract me. Furthermore, fashion was my professional milestone and hint of direction in which my further prof. development will go till the final profession, what I do today, Styling Consultancy.

In 2011, I wrote my first blogs on this theme and they were mostly rebellion against fashion and fashion trends, and in fervour of style. Today, from this point of view with a little more professional experience, fashion and style will become best friends that will go hand by hand in the near future. Things are more and more personalized what’s same happen on field of clothing. Of course, that does not mean that fashion designers will become fashion psychologists but they start to make more clothes for different personalities then for empty bodies or human dolls, also. Still, the same as relation between industry and technology versus human being and his intelligence, style will always be one step forward in comparison to fashion, simply because of inner condition of human being that only he can recognize and become aware of. Fashion is a unique clothing maschine and it will follow human life just to the certain point but, man will still transfer his present life situations in his clothing. On that way, he will still be in charge, and not some maschine, of his unique style which will follow personal development of human being.

So, my dear followers, follow fashion and fashion trends by choosing what does personally match to you, as a person and human being, and that moment when you start blindly follow fashion magazines and runways and put clothes on yourself as a part of routine with excuse that is socially accepted, take a minute and ask yourself in which direction your life start to go.

At least once in lifetime you saw, on Serbian weddings is very common, woman who wore very narrow dress which had big structure in front, for exp. flower or geometrical shape, with high heels but, she liked a lot to dance and she was all the time nervous and couldn’t sit on one place for longer so, she was pulling down her dress continuously as she couldn’t move as she would love to, and flower just bothered her and her feet broke off on high heels. All in all, she looked ridiculous and her styling was out of balance.
