REMY’S LOVE LETTER…
The bow has a long history in fashion, having at various points in time been highly popular. In the Victorian era, for instance, bows were common embellishment for both women and men, often being worn on dresses as hair accessories. Men’s bow ties were more exaggerated than the bow tie of modern times. During the Art Deco period, however, bows fell out of grace having been replaced by more geometric shapes and lines. This bow-less period quickly faded with the bow returning to fashion with a vengeance in the 1940’s, adorning clothing, hair accessories, and even jewelry.
I love a great bow for many reasons. First and foremost, bows make me smile. They are an instant inspiration of optimism and of all good surprises. They are versatile, classy, elegant, and even flirtatious. They come in all sizes and even in some varied shapes. A twist on a traditional bow can be interesting and unique.
Bows conjure up fantasies of romance and whimsy.
Bows brighten up even the dreariest garments.
Bows are bastions of femininity.
And lastly, bows have long ruled the runway in creations by some of the most influential designers from Dior to Valentino to Rodarte and Erdem.
To bow or not to bow…I will never say no!
