 Here are a few of my personal favourite Laces:

The Annabelle lace motifs in both colours are a beautiful 3 dimensional lace motif with stunning texture and design.

 

The Imperial Motif is a beautifully large motif that attracts so much colour and can brighten up any garment including day dresses and handbags. Selling one recently to a customer in the Boutique looking to brighten up her monochrome dress the yellow added such class and an amazing pop of colour on a black and white dress.

 

The Anastasia Ribbon in Cobalt is a striking blue and has a luscious textured finish that is perfect for adorning your couture.

 

 

Florals are gorgeous suiting the feminine floral personalities but they are not everyone’s go to choice. Swirl abstract patterns are a popular choice being a great favourite to suit individual personalities and are the perfect choice for menswear…

 

Which one is your favourite?

 

‘The Hero Motif is very popular with my European customers and also the Victoria is the first ribbon choice. They are very popular as they are not floral and can be used on many different dresses and dance styles, it  is also a brilliant choice for menswear. Victoria is also a very popular choice for mens shirts with my customers and is particular lace favourite of mine.’

Tamara is a very popular choice with my Russian customers as it is a more luxurious lace option available in a wide range of colours perfectly colour matching with our essential collections.’

‘My favourite lace motifs would have to be the Hero Motif. This lace is super easy to manipulate and can create beautiful symmetrical patterns, as well as making them into 3D features. The Emma Motif is super versatile and works with almost any design also.

 

Eternal Motif is also a fantastic lace, as it is easy to crystallize by following the shape of the lace. It has a light look than some of the other guipure lace motifs, so even when fully embellishing it does not add extra weight to the dress. A good example of this lace on a dress is BDD750MM. There is a lovely feature using this lace on the edge of the sleeve. The lace is really versatile as you can use it on delicate intricate designs or as strong and bold features, depending on how the lace is crystallized and decorated!’
