One fabric, multiple uses. That’s the advantage of velvet nowadays. It’s the ideal fabric for a daywear statement blazer and the perfect way to a seductive evening dress. Easy to mix and match with any other fabric or material, from sequins and leather to a simple pair of jeans. As for the longevity of the trend (i would hardly call it a trend, as almost every season has a “piece” of velvet), i can assure you that it is as classic as silk. Most likely you will pass it on to the next generation and they will be grateful. Velvet combines two important virtues: luxury and comfort. I guess nothing can beat that! HCC.
