Step Back in Time: Vintage Wedding Gowns
The vintage look is becoming more and more popular among couture designers and fashion-conscious brides, all of whom delight in that Art Deco look. From our large and diverse collection of wedding dress material, we have selected four lace fabric styles ideal for creating an authentic vintage-style gown.
An ivory tulle base has been transformed with strings of pearls and beads, which hang freely from the material and swish and sway in the most charming manner as the wearer moved. This style of lace was showcased to wonderful effect by Amanda Holden, when she wore a 3D lace dress on an episode of Britain's Got Talent.
Named after Shakespeare's glamorous heroine, this is a delightful lace fabric style that perfectly captures the exuberant sophistication of the 1920s. Delicate woven bands, each featuring exquisite floral detail embellished with beads, pearls, sequins and diamantes, cross the tulle, separated by geometric lines and free-swinging strings of tubular beads.
A true classic, Myrtle ivory lace comprises an array of diamond shapes across its width. These eye-catching diamonds are created using a mixture of spherical and tubular beads, more of which are added in strings to create a 3D effect. Exciting and enchanting, this is a beautiful option that has wow factor to burn.
The Charleston was a dance craze that emerged in the 1920s and embodies this glamorous era: to celebrate the dance and the fashionable clothing that went with it, we have created Charleston Couture Embroidery. A soft georgette base in a rich ivory color has been embroidered with gorgeous ivory sequins, creating a soft, abstract zigzag motif across the material. The final finishing touch comes in the form of a delicate, feminine fringe. Made using pure silk of the softest, most tactile quality, this couture embroidery is really something special.
