Homespun crafts get a glamorous rethink this season
Tassels and feathers shimmy across every surface, while crochet, macramé and appliqué add texture to simple shift dresses.
Designers adopt age-old techniques - plaiting, weaving and knotting - to create pieces which look beautifully handmade and rich in history.
Style tip: Minimise the boho effect - these feathered and fringed adornments add movement and character, not rustic charm.
