Colored Lace Could Be the Key to YOUR Personality

So, what are your views on personality tests? Think they can reveal the true inner you? Or are they just something to fill those spare magazine column inches? Or maybe you’re like us - somewhere in the middle? One thing that seems pretty certain is that a person’s favorite colors can give an insight into how their mind works - light and colour are so important to us visual creatures that, even unconsciously, they influence us all the time.

You probably rarely think about your favorite color but it’s a certainty that you have one. One of the ways that we all use colour is in our clothing - even if you only wear all black or all white! It is a tool of self-expression, letting the world know how we feel through what we wear. Your wedding day is a perfect time to let your individuality shine through and more brides than ever before are opting for colored lace instead of the traditional white and ivory.

Ok, it’s time for a little experiment. Will you be our lab rats?! We want you to pick your favorite from these popular lace colors and tell us if the description matches YOUR personality.. so here goes:

  • Orange - for a woman who is at the centre of her social circle and loves to show her sunny feelings

  • Red - you are full of lust for life and want everyone else to join in the celebration as well!

  • Black - a dramatic soul who everyone wonders what is going to get up to next…

  • Candy Pink - playful and fun, you’re the first person anyone calls when they need a friend to cheer them up

  • Yellow - a happy, friendly type who balances optimism with realism in a skilful way

  • Chartreuse - charming and regal, you would give the Queen of England a run for her money!

  • Steel Grey - you like to be at the cutting-edge of style and you want everyone to know it

  • Violet - there is a sense of magic about you that people find alluring and mesmerising. Did you cast a love spell…?!

So there it is, the Bridal Fabrics Color Quiz! Pick your favourite, read the description again and see what you think. How close did we get? Way off base? Or maybe a little too close for comfort?

A Gorgeous Gown — Prepare To Be AMAZED...

We were really excited recently to receive an email featuring photos of THIS dreamy wedding gown - feast your eyes and let yourself be amazed for a moment by its beauty. Ok, have you got your breath back? Then read on to find out more about who created this fairytale dress!

Just one look at the gown lets you know right away that it is the work of an extremely-talented couture designer. It was designed and made by Simon Henry Couture, who selected products from the Bridal Fabrics collection to fulfil the vision of his client - and he most certainly achieved that goal! We went to discover a little more about Simon and what we discovered was a designer so talented in such a diverse range of disciplines that we could hardly believe our eyes..

Simon can rightly be called an expert when it comes to textiles, as can be seen just from this one dress. He boasts an international list of clients which contains the names of several very well-known celebrities (like a true professional, he refuses to name-drop) and has also published three books on the topic of dressmaking - these books have enjoyed worldwide success. His gowns have been seen on couture runways and at prestigious red-carpet awards ceremonies and he is also a champion quiltmaker.

Not content with just working independently, Simon is also employed by other couture houses for his unique work in tambour beading, goldwork and digital machining. As well as sewing, he can knit and crochet to a professional level, producing patterns which appear in publications from L.A. to London, England. In his spare time (which we don’t know how he finds), Simon is a successful makeup artist, beauty therapist and hair stylist!

In creating the dress pictured here, Simon used:

Chantilly Lace - Adelaide

A deliciously-feminine lace with matching fringed and scalloped edges, Adelaide features a floral motif that extends into the body of the lace to produce a mesmerising effect. This is enhanced with the addition of several other, smaller floral motifs that are simply gorgeous and deliver that true couture look that every bride wants and deserves.

Duchess Satin

This is a no-snag fabric and, according to Simon, ‘sews like a dream’ -  a massive and important commendation from somebody who is so widely experienced and has worked with every fabric there is to work with. The deep, rich ivory coloration is elegant and refined, making the bride look even more alluring.
