Since satin was invented over 2000 years ago in China, satin fabric has always evoked feelings of sensuality and elegance. Originally, satin was woven using only the finest silk fibers, yet by the time it migrated to Europe in the middle ages, this fabric was also available in cotton. Known for its silky sheen and soft appearance, today satin is identified as being the fabric of choice of brides as well as celebrities for their ‘all eyes on me’ strutting down any red carpet. It was not until the early 19th century that satin was used as a bridal material, however, and we have England’s Queen Victoria to thank for that. Today, when we think of satin, it likely evokes images of Rita Hayworth from the ‘40s wearing a strapless satin gown accessorized with above-the-elbow satin gloves. And who can forget Marilyn Monroe’s blazing scarlet satin number dripping with ‘diamonds’ in 1953’s Gentlemen Prefer Blondes? Since the late 1960s satin mini dresses have been a coveted gown to wear for proms, wedding parties, and to special occasions out. At TandyWear, we cannot say that this style is back because as far as we are concerned, it has never been out!
