New 'The Collection' TV Show Highlights Growing Interest in Dressmaking: The Remnant House Comments

Harrogate, England -- (SBWire) -- 02/24/2016 --Reports have drawn attention to a new television programme about fashion; dressmaking in particular, called 'The Collection'. It is set to air later this year and is set to follow the lives of a series of people working in the dressmaking industry behind the fashion house Dior. Its theme highlights what could be seen as the rising public interest in dressmaking and textiles; something experts in the field, The Remnant House, were keen to comment on.

Dressmaking plays a prominent role in the history of many countries. Although 'The Collection' is set to document the rise of the French fashion house, Dior – it's exploration of the women's handiwork and how it applied to fashions overseas, means it has big implications for UK audiences too. It is also set to feature Meryl Streep's daughter, Marnie Gummer. Dressmaking has a particular historical value in the UK, where it is celebrated as a versatile skill and even a crafting hobby.

The Remnant House are prime providers of sewing and dress fabric, frequent commentators on related news. A spokesperson had this to say:

"The announcement of the upcoming show 'The Collection' highlights a key cultural event – one in a long line of projects inspired by the activity of dressmaking. We hope that this encourages more British viewers to get involved themselves; as the women of Dior proved, beginning with some fabric and fashion ambition – big results are possible. Here at The Remnant House we offer a wide range of dress fabric, including batik options, so our customers can create the best designs."
