Go Big or Go Home!

We’re talking bows here!  We saw bows make a statement come back in 2018 but that has nothing on the hot BIG BOW trend of 2019. These bows are super structural and feature on the shoulders and back and dominate the silhouette of the gown or jumpsuit. Let’s take Balmain Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2019 pink bow.  That’s the size standard here so whack the dimensions up, super size those bows to secure an edgy en vogue bridal vibe that’s just so now!  

To create these stunning structural bridal bows here are some superlative fabrics to use:

Mikado 306

This is a relatively heavyweight fabric, which can give a wonderful structure to a wedding dress. The fabric has a soft and durable handle and is easy to work with.  We now offer this Mikado in both Dark Ivory and Light Ivory. 

Dark Ivory Mikado Fabric


Contessa is a Polyester Matt Duchess Satin and is available in a range of 20 colours. This fabric is woven and dyed in Japan and is made from twisted yarns, which result in a highly dense weave and a “non snag” performance. Contessa has a firm handle and a very rich appearance. The perfect satin for structural pieces.
