Mills focused on embellishment, heritage looks and luxe fabrics at The Music Room on October 19-20.
Litmans offers fabrics for evening, occasion and party wear. Embroidered and beaded lace looks strong, while foiled lace catches the eye. Another option blends foiled sections with printed areas on an acetate and spandex blend for a sparkly dimensional effect.

Floral and polka dots are embroidered onto organza and dupion for a playful style, while embroidered tulles and embellished organza stand out. Crushed silk dupion brings a dimensional feel alongside a push on blended silk options, including wool, linen and taffeta.

British Alpaca Fashion
Launched in June, British Alpaca Fashion offers a blend of alpaca, silk and linen. Herringbones channel the heritage look while a checkerboard fabric has a three-colour cotton warp and alpaca weft. Felted alpaca is more directional. All the alpaca is farmed in the UK.
