Excitement is a word to describe the emotions and expectation all of us fashion enthusiasts experience every time a fashion runway is on its way, forecasting what the designers are going to offer, what the trends will be and some even fight over an invitation to make their way through the shows and experience them first hand. It involves designers, models, artists, celebrities, catering, hotels, airlines, press and fashion experts, etc., form all over the globe. The amazing organizational skills and resources and logistics expertise involved in making these events happen cause mayhem and stress for some, but pays off every time as millions follow very closely every detail of the highest quality clothes and spectacles brought to us.

Under this context, it makes it hard to believe and seem incredible what it was that started it all: the invention of the needle. Yes, the invention of this most basic sewing tool, and now a tiny piece of metal now taken for granted, is the spark that led to what is now the global fashion industry.

Some 17,000 years ago, as the earth was under dramatic and constant climate change and the human race was at its mercy to find food, protection for their families and survival, one of our genius ancestors came up with a sharp piece of bone with a split head to sew some rags of skin and fur for basic protection against cold and for men to be able to go out hunting.

Animal gut was used as thread and since then, the new technique did nothing but quickly evolve, giving birth to the basics of fashion, as clothes stopped from being a basic protection feature to become a symbol of status amongst the newly sedentary groups, as better quality and hard-to-get skins and furs started to become more desirable for humans.

And we all know how far the story has come, with the unstoppable creativity of the human being.
