Lace For Modern Pieces

Using lace for your bespoke pieces

Lace is a time-honored fabric that has been used for centuries to create exquisite and unique bespoke pieces. Its intricate patterns and delicate nature make it a popular choice for creating special, luxurious garments and accessories. Delicate lace is often used in the creation of bridal gowns and veils, as it adds a touch of elegance and romance to the bride’s attire. It is usually used to create intricate patterns on the bodice, sleeves, or train of a wedding gown, adding a stunning visual element to the dress.

For modern pieces, the use of lace does not always have to be extensive, it can simply be added on small areas needed as an accent, for a modern and romantic look. Just like how a delicate floral lace overlay is added to a bridal top, adding a soft layering of blooms. Here are some more ways to add lace into your bespoke pieces:

Lace panel for your cheongsam

Here is an example of how lace can be used as an overlay on one small area on a cheongsam, adding a touch of glamour and sophistication. It is important to carefully select the right lace patterns to create harmony with the other fabrics and even buttons.

Lace as a back detail

Adding lace as a back detail not only adds beauty to the dress, but it also adds a surprise element. It is perfect for those who would like to keep their outfit more clean and timeless at the front and create a focus at the back, either with intricate florals or other patterns.

Lace as an outer

Lace also works wonderfully as an additional piece of outer or cape for your dress. Besides adding texture and contrast, they also add versatility to the outfit, with more options for creating different looks. Just like a custom piece for our client, where the contrast of the sleekness of her silk satin dress with the intricate floral design complements each other perfectly.

Depending on the design and color, lace can make an outfit more romantic, oriental, sophisticated, or simply more special in its ways. One of the important things to note is creating harmony between the fabrics used in a custom piece, especially when there is more than one color involved.
