Written by F. Scott Fitzgerald and set in the roaring 1920s, The Great Gatsby tells the story of the eponymous and mysterious Gatsby, known for throwing the most extravagant parties at which only the most stylish and fashionable guests are in attendance. Elegant, decadent and opulent, the sartorial aesthetic of the era is perfectly suited to wedding attire for today.
Check out these five styles of ivory beaded lace, all of which immediately evoke that vintage 1920s fabric look...
Cynthia Ivory Beaded Lace
To create Cynthia ivory beaded lace fabric, sequins, beads and pearls are artfully arranged to form undulating waves across an ivory tulle base. This unique design can be used with equal success to create bridal gowns or eveningwear dresses.
Desdemona Ivory Beaded Lace
Desdemona is a refined choice, featuring delicate woven bands embellished with floral detailing, sequins, diamantes and beads. The panels that separate these bands are equally attractive, embroidered with clean vertical lines and embellished with tubular beads. These beads are also used to form free-hanging strands that swing seductively as the wearer moves.
Dido Ivory Beaded Lace
Gorgeous and glamorous, Dido comprises an ivory tulle embellished with pearls and strings of beads. Designed for a bride who wants to be the centre of attention, this bridal lace produces a regal, showstopping swish with every step the wearer takes.
Myrtle Ivory Beaded Lace
Named after one of the protagonists in The Great Gatsby, Myrtle ivory beaded lace is simply enchanting. Onto an ivory tulle, our designer has arranged tubular and spherical beads into delightful diamond shapes before adding sequins for that crucial shimmer. Strings of beads hang freely from these diamonds in true 1920s Charleston style.
Astaire Ivory Beaded Lace
A uniquely unusual lace fabric, Astaire features distinct areas of bead, sequin and pearl embellishments. Eye-catching strings of beads are added to create mesmerising movement. It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing! This bridal lace has to be seen to be truly appreciated so why not order a free sample?
