I wanted a lightweight lace stole that was unfussy and modern, a perfect accessory that could easily look at home worn with something pretty and feminine as well as something chic and simple. Nashira walks that line for me - it is at once lacy yet modern, simple but with interesting details. The Tanis Fiber Arts Silver Label silk gives this fantastic drape and a glamorous sheen. Nashira means ‘she who brings good news’, and is a star in the Capricorn constellation.
