First introduced to the world in 1827 after Hannah Montague accidentally stripped off the collar of her husband´s shirt and then sewed it back on, the detachable collars are once again made famous by fashion designers, think Thakoon´s leopard print version, or Victoria´s matching stiff collars and sleeves´cuffs, and brought to even higher levels with Marni´s cute detachable collar collections.
Starting from the runway, detachable collars are quickly embraced by fashion bloggers and adapted by many avid fashionistas. Designs vary to cater both the taste of teenagers and matured stylistas but all detachable collars serve the same purpose, to quickly transform an outfit into something trendy and interesting.

“First introduced to the world in 1827 after Hannah Montague accidentally stripped off the collar of her husband´s shirt and then sewed it back on….” I had no idea that’s how they were first invented; that’s pretty awesome. 😀
My favorite is the laser-cut collar from Topshop; I think it looks really cute, almost dainty. 😀
I have some sewing patterns for detachable collars, so I’ve been interested in making some of my own.
Hi Alyssa, I can´t wait to see your tutorial on DIY detachable collars.
