Often used in the context of dyeing in the textile industry, color fastness refers to the color resistance of certain material to running or fading. Generally speaking, colorfastness tests should be carried out prior to the use of cleaning products.

In fashion, every single detail counts. Whether it is the color of the buttons on a contour coat or the shoe lace thread material on a trendy pair of sneakers, it is the small details that either make or break the look.
With the just concluded Mercedes Benz China Fashion Week, one thing is clear. Zippers are cool. This was evident especially in kids’ couture with a wide variety of zippers being heavily featured on the runway. Who knew you could do so much with zippers?
The 2017 Spring/Summer edition of Mercedes-Bens China Fashion Week just closed with an amazement from those who attended and those who participated. Ever since its inception in 1997, the China Fashion Week has graced the fashion industry twice a year in Beijing and has become one of the top-rated platforms for fashion design, styling, accessories and design technologies, of which China is one of the forefront countries.
The most amazing thing about fashion is the fact that it is full of surprises. Something that is ignored and underrated today can easily turn into a trend tomorrow that people can’t get enough of. It just takes a brave and creative mind to come up with ways to change people’s perception.
