To add a little jazz to your latest creations, why not try lamè fabrics. Of course, this fabric comes with quite the reputation- like hot pants in silver lame (as made popular by American Apparel, unfortunately) and flashy gold “Members Only” jackets reminiscent of the Studio 54 glory days. I’m sure this conjures some frightening images in your head right now, but don’t worry. I’m not suggesting you make an entire body suit in this famously frightening fabric. I am suggesting, however, that you consider using it as a trim or combo fabric, as its lustrous qualities can easily spark up any creation! It’s been overlooked for too long! I’d also suggest some accessories in this luminous fabric, like an envelope clutch or wide headbands.
