Style School: Will You Get Duped by Dupioni?

March 25, 2008 by SheFindsErin

Greetings, style students. Hope you all enjoyed last week's assignment — we added a little extra bling just for you. Did you read up on pavé diamonds? And did you pick the stunning and totally covetable Frank Gehry Fish ring from Tiffany & Co. as the ring that featured the so-chic technique? Pavé settings are made up of a large number of small stones (usually diamonds, although I've been seeing a lot of quartz and other smokey gemstones lately) set closely together and held in place by tiny beads of setting metal. The effect is an extra twinkly one; the sparkly surfaces of pieces using the pavé technique look like they are literally "paved" with stones.

This week's pop quiz takes us back to the wonderful world of fabrics. Wedding season is fast approaching, and chances are most of you hunting for the perfect wedding-attending attire will come across at least one fab frock in Dupioni silk. One of the fresh yellow dresses above is made with Dupioni silk, and the other is satin. Think you can spot the subtle differences? You'll have to wait until next week's session to find out if you're a formal fabric master.

Extra Credit alert: There's no doubt that, in all your paging through magazines and watching Project Runway marathons, you've come across fashion terms that leave you scratching your head. Tip us off in the comments section below and we'll try to incorporate your Q's into our Style School quizzes.
