TEX T BY MARIEL A ORTEGA
From the way we move to the way we shop, machines have been
taking over our lives one industry at a time. Despite that, when
it comes to fashion, the craftsmanship of handmade products
has not faded. This couture season is a celebration of the hard
work that goes into the production of jaw-dropping gowns made
“the old-fashioned way.” On runways across the globe, fashion
houses such as Chanel, Dior and Schiaparelli presented dresses
that were brought to life thanks to hundreds of hours of hand
labor that included everything from hand-cut lace to over-the-
top embellishments. Even though a designer couture gown is not
something that can easily be acquired for most, it will not take long
for this trend to trickle down and invade every fashion brand on the
planet — from Alice + Olivia to Zara. So let’s wait patently to have
the perfect piece of hand-embroidered details that will make out
closet a more interesting place to plan out outfits for any occasion.
