Beyond the Trend: Crochet

START

Arts and crafts details including macramé and wooden beads were spotted all over the Spring 2019 runways, but none rivaled the abundance of crochet. Designers applied the homespun look to their collections in inventive ways, some leaning into the craft’s folk aesthetic and others finding modern treatments. Either way, the trend was born from a tradition of stitching yarn using a hooked tool that goes back to the 1800s in western history, when it became the preferred ornamental fashion in Scotland and other areas of the UK. Crochet was used throughout various eras in fashion history since then, including a resurgence in the 1970s hippie movement during which crochet was used to create folk-influenced, kaleidoscopic-colored garments. Delve into the various contexts of crochet, from its roots as a valued craft to its current forms in the Spring 2019 collections.
