Its June 2012 and in every corner of every city, I have been to, in the last 6 months all I see is monochrome stripes. With the amounts of monochrome in my peripheral vision, I have to remind myself that I am not strolling around the plains of sunny Africa, surrounded by zebras and that these are women walking around in one of this seasons hottest trends! That coupled with, the British weather that has been doing what it does best (raining)- is a definite reminder, I am still in the UK.
Its nuts to see how much of a craze this trend has become!

BANG ON TREND! April 2012

Lets rewind 2 years back to February 2010- long before Rihanna was getting up close with Drake and dancing in the streets, singing “Whats my name?” wearing a monochrome striped jacket.

Rememeber this picture- yes it was taken on 27th February 2010

…..And what do we have here?? Monochrome high waist leggings by Dolls of Decadence, modelled by Rebecca Fisher- one of my earlier creations under Dolls of Decadence, whilst I was still trying to establishing the company and making a statement.

And back then, which so seems like a lifetime ago, while I was screaming that black and white stripes were the shizzle.

I even remember one comment: “Wow! Those leggings are awesome, I don’t think I could wear them or pull them off though”
Hmmm….judging from some recent Facebook profile pictures of that same persons, I’d say thats changed! Ha!
Ar-well. I told you we are the revolution….

So, well done to the few that purchased some of our fabulous black/white striped at the time. Unfortuneately, this product is no longer available form Dolls of Decadence.
We have swiftly moved long. Long before trends become high street crazes, Dolls of Decadence would have loved them and left them. We are aiming to be innovators here, at Dolls of Decadence HQ
