Mum’s the Word

A “mum” is a name given to an elaborate, decorative corsage worn by schoolgirls during the American high school homecoming festivities in Texas (“garters” are the schoolboy equivalent).

Held in early autumn, homecoming is one of the most important events in the American school calendar, with dances, football games, a parade and a homecoming king and queen.

Goudy, tacky, over the top and kitch? Yes, but I find the concept of the idea intriguing - how it has escalated over the years from a simple flowered token to a piece that is both representative of personality and family history celebrated in a real Texas showcase and parade. Style for all to see.

What would yours say about you?
