FASHION AND NEW LOOK
Are you bored with your look? Is your wardrobe almost empty? Do you find your dresses old fashioned? Do you want all flowery skirts to be tartan?
Do you fell strange when you go out and everyone is wearing a striped jacket and yours is still checked? There is one hope for you-intelligent fabric.
Fashion is moving into the twenty-first century. A jacket changing colour with the weather, blouse dots vanishing on the wearer, odour free blouse worn for days on end-these recent innovations are made possible by advances in fibre technology .’Intelligent’ fibres , containing chemical capsules that react to temperature and light, will improve our fashion and it will be something normal to change patterns or fragrances of our clothes.
