You can love them or hate them, but the 80’s have been so much important for fashion that also now, after 30 years, we are still wearing them.
London, more than every other city in the world, has been the symbol of the 80’s culture and mood.
Hidden in the streets in the area of the Navigli, in the heart of Milan, Biblioteca della Moda is one of that places that you have to visit if you live in this city and if you like fashion.
You can understand what it is just by hearing or reading its name, but you can appreciate it indeed only if you visit it. Biblioteca della Moda is a private archive collecting more than 45.000 titles (books, magazines, trend books, catalogues, etc.) dating from 1850 to the present day.
It is a place where you can get lost in reading, discovering and appreciating the aesthetic and cultural beauty of fashion.

In this post I will try to give you some information about chenille, thanks to the contents and the support that the company Giorgini Silvano gave me about this. Giorgini is among the best international manufacturers of this kind of yarn.
Chenille is commercially produced since the Seventies and shortly became used everywhere. It is a difficult material to create and transform and it can be composed by different kind of yarn such as cotton, rayon, acrylic, polyester and polypropylene.
Janet Prescott was among the judges of the last Feel the Yarn competitions. Jane has more than 20 years of experience in the fashion and textile area. She recently put all her know how into a book called Fashion Textiles Now. The book talks about the importance of the textile which is able to make or break a collection or even a fashion label:
The new autumn/winter collection by Citizens of Humanity was recently presented also in Milano.
