ENGINEERED Fabrics – The fabric itself helps build a fashion statement. With tailoring prowess, 2 types of designs can be shown on a singular garment. For example, the contrast strip is given as a twist to make is more stylish. The arrangement of keeping the contrast strip, warp wise, along with selvedge is carefully calculated, as per the technical tailoring terms. The contrast strip then can be used as an elbow patch, shoulder patch, on front panel, on collars, on lapels, on pockets and so on for a nice contrast colour play.
