I am fascinated with metallic trims, especially those from the late 1800s through the edwardian and flapper periods. I often think why? Is it the beautiful textures, embroideries, shimmer or pantina? How lovely an edwardian evening gown must have been with drapes of metallic lace over shimmery silk or cotton underlay. Or beautiful bold french lame wrapped around the bottom of flappers evening dress. I am most overwhelmed when I find a vintage garment that has both soft and strong aspects.
