I was five when my dad launched his upholstery business. He made sofa sets of different styles, as well as beds. With the three most common materials he used for the cover – mohair, leather and velvet – it´s the latter that I was fascinated with. I would watch my dad cut the thick rolls of velvet, then sew them on his sewing machine. The moment the covers were fitted on a sofa, I would run my hands on it and watch in awe how the velvet reacted to my touch. That early, I decided that velvet is sophisticated.
Many years later my dad´s business diverted to furniture, he made less upholstered sofas, but my admiration for velvet just continued. Now as an adult, my love affair for velvet extended to clothing. It injects an element of mystery to a look, the statement is intriguing. Because this material adapts to the temperature, you can rock a velvet anytime of the year.
