TOP 10 CELEBRATORY FABRICS




Fabric can be defined as material produced by weaving or knitting fibers. It is an interlocking network of yarns and threads and may be made of various compositions like cotton, wool, polyester, rayon, nylon, silk and other threads.


Fabric is used to make clothing which we wear to cover our bodies. The major function of clothing is to cover our bodies from our nakedness and provide warmth. It provides us with one of our 3 major basic needs as humans, which are:

1.FOOD

2.CLOTHING; and

3. SHELTER


Clothing is also used for a variety of other reasons such as uniforms and identification.


Below, we list our top 10 choices of fabrics that are perfect for making ‘celebration wear or garments’ particularly when this is for the celebrant of an occasion.

Our top choices are listed below:


1. SEQUINS

2. SILKS

3. CREPE

4. VELVET

5. LACE

6. TULLE

7. PRINTS & AFRICAN PRINTS

8. FAUX FUR

9. DENIM

10. LEATHER


1. SEQUINS:

This is number one on our list because this fabric is a good choice for making a celebratory garment. It is full of shine, glitter, and / or sparkle. According to Wikipedia, we quote “Sequins (mainly made out of reflective bits of metals) sewn into jackets, bonnets, and dresses were popular among the nobility and wealthy during the 17th to 19th century.”

According to the Oxford Dictionary, Sequin is defined as “a small shiny disk sewn as one of many onto clothing for decoration.”


The sequin fabric spells out 'magnificent, bold and glamorous' on a celebratory dress. For a celebrant who wants to go all out, and who wants all the sparkle and shine on the day of her celebration, this fabric may be a go-to choice for her. However, sequin is not known to be used as for wedding/bridal wear. This fabric can be used as a fabric choice for a whole garment or may be incorporated into a design.


2. SILKS:

Silks are another good choice for celebratory garments. They are known for their fine feel to the touch and for their softness. Silk is made out of cocoons or silkworms. They are also spun out of insect larvae or according to the Oxford Dictionary, out of spiders.


For a celebration garment, #silky is always a good way to go.

Some types of silks include:

  • Charmeuse

  • Satin

  • Chiffon

  • Organza

  • Taffetta


At Nao-Me Clothing, we love all types of silks and we believe there is no bad silk but on top of our list is the Taffeta Silk.

TAFFETA is a crisp, smooth, plain fabric made from silk or cuprammonium rayons as well as acetate and polyester.

Others fabric choices include :

5. LACE

6. TULLE

7. PRINTS & AFRICAN PRINTS

8. FAUX FUR
