Fabrics in Focus - Lace

Lace is a delicate and unique feature that can add detail to your wedding gown and will create a timeless and elegant look.
Chantilly lace is a handmade bobbin lace named after the city of Chantilly, France, in a tradition dating from the 17th century.  The Duchesse de Longueville organised the manufacture of lace at Chantilly. It came into fashion again during the reigns of  Louis XV and Louis XVI, and was a favourite of Louis XV's last mistress, Madame du Barry, and Marie Antoinette.

Our ‘Allegra’ gown features a strapless sweetheart neckline and fishtail silhouette.  The corded lace used on the bodice of the gown balances the tulle of the skirt.  The lace softens the design and adds a subtle unique detail to the gown.  By using a ribbon in ivory or an accent colour can break up the lace detail and personalise your look.

Beaded lace can add detail and sparkle to your gown. The beads catch the light beautifully and this detail is perfect for brides who love some bling.  Keep accessories to a minimum so you don’t have different jewelled elements conflicting – a pair of diamond studs or drop earrings would be perfect.
Our ‘Juliet’ gown features this beaded lace over a corset base with georgette skirt and drape detail.

For those brides wanting a vintage look and feel to their special day, lace is perfect.  Our ‘Emily’ Jacket shown here with our ‘Margot’ Skirt features a delicate lace with scalloped edge. 

Whether you add a touch of lace or go for a full all-over lace look, lace gives you a gorgeous pretty vintage look that is perfect for Spring and Summer.
