Christine drew our attention to a wonderful Dolce and Gabbana dress featured in their Spring/Summer collection 2019. On the video it comes up at 12.27 but the parade itself is worth a watch because it is full of colour, texture, movement and interesting uses of textiles. In a photo it looks like they have printed mandala onto fabric but in real life you can see the mandala are made of sequins. It is great to see crochet inspiring fashion houses like D&G. Still images of this parade are on the Vogue site
In crochet circles mandala are ever popular. They are colourful. They are interesting to make and they can be as big or as small as you want them to be so they have lots of uses and make a good visual impact because they are so vibrant and have texture.
