Fashion trends - The 'hi-low' hem: nothing new

Many fashion trends draw on the past for inspiration.The current Hi-Low/ 'Mullet' hem trend is no exception.
Higher at the front than the back - 'Hi-Low' or



'Mullet' like the hairstyle of the '70s and 80s !







It is a flattering style for dresses. The back view is not everywoman's most flattering angle. The hi-low hem offers the benefits of the elegance of a longer gown with the convenience and practicality of a shorter hemline at the front, making it easier to walk without tripping, or the need to hitch up the dress.

The 1920's is remowned for it's uneven hemline but there were also 'hi-low' hems

                          1920's                           1920's                       1925 Lanvin




















It was also a very popular design feature in the 1950's

                          VINTAGE 1950'S                                            DIOR



























The trend is very strong in BRIDAL wear for the 2013 season
                                                                                                                                                                    DIOR


















I have been commissioned to make a wedding dress with Hi-low hem for this summer. The dress is 50's style made of ice blue silk Duchesse satin with matching silk organza overlay. It has pockets too!.
I think the trend may be around for a while.                                                Design copyright Meryl Smart 2013

The Hi-low hem was already popular in 2012 and continues in 2013

                  DIOR                                                       CHANEL                                                                                 




















Hi-Low hems can be stylishly casual too. The trend can be seen all over the High Street in tops. skirts and dresses,


















                  
                                 
So there is a version for everyone!
