FASHION WORD OF THE DAY

Fringe

An edging consisting of hanging threads, tassels. Fringe originated as a way of preventing a cut piece of fabric from unraveling when a hemming was not used. Several strands of weft threads would be removed, and the remaining warp threads would be twisted or braided together to prevent unraveling. In modern fabrics, fringe is more commonly made separately and sewn on.
Check out the Fringe detail on this Bridget Awosika SS14 dress. Love!
