Stocking have been in the fashion scene since 1589. An English churchman Rev. William Lee invented the first knitting machine. Silk stockings were worn to protect from cold. Till the end of 18th century even men used to wear silk stockings. With the invention of ‘Dupont Nylon’ fibre, the dominance of silk stockings faded away and Nylon stockings came in vogue after World War II. Stockings are back with a bang in the 21st century and have become indispensable part of woman’s wardrobe to fire up their style quotient.
