A Melody Of Fabrics: Gowns & Textiles

Dresses and gowns will always be threaded through our lives, from picking out our first special dress, to wearing a gorgeous gown for our school formal, and of course, putting on our wedding dress. When selecting dresses for a special event, we are thinking about more than just the dress itself, we are considering the way it will make us feel and how it’s sparkle will add to an already special event. Due to this, it is important to consider what our dresses are made up from, the textiles that are used to create a dress the dress for us. Think of how Cinderella felt when her dress was created – the perfect construction of textiles to create a dress that suited her occasion and made her feel special.

The careful selection of fabrics and textures resonates with both our eyes and our souls. From dresses threaded with a metallic thread, to dresses constructed with golden flecks, a dress is made with the wearer in mind to ensure they will feel remarkable at their event. All eyes will be on you in a style that makes you look and feel oh so confident and radiant. 

 

A Symphony Of Satin

Satin is a wonderous fabric, it is soft and lush and will make you feel oh so whimsical. It is the perfect textile for bridesmaids’ dresses as it will have them looking sleek and sophisticated when standing by the bride. A satin dress is also the perfect choice for a garden wedding guest, it’s sheen will shine under the afternoon sun. When choosing a satin dress, you can opt for light or dark colours, either way you will feel refined and ready for a special event.

 

The Embellishment

A dress with embellishments will always make you feel on top of the word. From fabulous feathers to brilliant beading, an embellished dress is one that will be treasured forever. Mothers of the bride love wearing a hand beaded gown to their daughter’s wedding – not only is it spectacular to look at, it is also something that is to be cared for. Birthday girls will love wearing a feathered dress or gown (depending on their dress code), as a feather trim neckline will not only embrace your décolletage but will make you feel like a million dollars.

 

In The Little Details

When it comes to choosing the dress for your event, it doesn’t always have to be spectacular, it is often the little details that really stand out to us. The little details can be something from a metallic thread or a gold fleck to an off the shoulder detail or a ruched neckline. Whatever detail stands out to you is the most important one to consider when shopping for a dress. A simple dress can also be paired with bold earrings or a shiny headpiece to pull a look together.
