History Of The Garment

During the 18th century silk became popular in the west and manufacturing methods were improving and many clothing brands started producing silk accessories. And in the 19th century Liberty Of London started producing light silk scarves that became extremely popular during the post-war years. After the end of the Second World War, the world was craving for more bold and vibrant colours in their wardrobes. During the 1950’s patterned scarves became popular especially when filk stars like Audrey Hepburn liked to wear her scarves tied neatly around her neck and Brigitte Bardot styled her scarf into a statement headband.
