On the Catwalk
The popularity of lace is never in decline. Although a staple element of the wedding dress, lace is currently enjoying a resurgence in its use for everyday wear as haute couture designers embrace its feminine, lavish charms. During the recent Paris Fashion Week in July, Elie Saab and Valentino both unveiled refined, elegant collections which relied heavily on the use of various types and colours of lace to achieve their stunning, glamorous effects. Valentino’s looks brought to mind fantasy princesses; simply cut gowns, dresses and coats with intricate lace detail that required hundreds of hours of weaving and embroidery. Saab’s collection had a very glamorous 1920s feel; his tulle, chiffon and lace creations shimmered in tones of blush, bronze and aquamarine.
Although the traditional wedding gown is always white or ivory, more and more brides are choosing something a little more daring and personal. Coloured lace can have a dramatic effect, turning a simple white gown into a stunningly beautiful creation. When laid over bridal fabrics, the beauty of coloured lace is truly revealed and the result can be uniquely attractive. Perhaps the most daring is black lace; although not usually associated with weddings, it can add an excitingly bold touch when used creatively.
Bridal Fabrics have selected a range of our most popular laces which are suitable for dyeing. With a wide range of colours from the soft pastel to the vibrant and vivid, our beautifully crafted laces can be adapted to suit any requirement. The creative, individualistic bride-to-be will find everything she needs to create her own unique wedding dress, just the way she wants it. As with all our bridal lace, any length can be cut to individual requirements and is guaranteed to exceed expectations. Once the type, colour and length of the piece is decided upon, the lace will be dyed to order; this bespoke process takes 7-10 days.
