Ombré, mi amore.

4 Dec

‘Hhhhooommm Bbrrraaayyy’, {breathy voice} just the word itself sounds alluring and intriguing. Ombré is a French word meaning ‘to shade’ and is often used to describe a dip-dye effect given to fabric in which the shades of color graduate from light to dark. The most sophisticated look is based on a monochromatic color scheme but three different complementary colors can also be combined like in my new range of lightweight scarves. The look is all about color, with the feeling an artist has dipped and shaded the colors by hand. This simple dyeing or playing with colour technique lends itself to all types of garments and fashion accessories and I’ve even transferred the gradient effect to ‘Rock Ribbons’ satin ribbon woven cushions. 

Looking around my store its easy to see how I feel about colour and ombré, its ‘mi amore’.

Ombre Love
