A Ruching Renaissance

It is flattering, chic and oh so luxe, ruched dresses are here to stay. Be revitalised for your spring event season with an elegant ruched gown or wedding guest dress. Ruching is an art form, it involves the gathering or pleating of fabric through rows of stiches to create delicate folds which add depth to a dress. It has always been favoured in formal dresses and cocktail dresses as it adds a touch of opulent detailing and can elevate a simple silhouette to create dimensional qualities.

Ruched details are flattering, and they are the perfect details to elevate any wedding guest dress or bridesmaid dress. Ruching is classic yet when combined with contemporary styles it produces a very modern look. For your next formal wedding or black-tie event, choose a ruched dress which is truly sophisticated and classy.


Classic Charm

Adding ruching to an already classic style elevates it to a whole new level. Off the shoulder dresses with ruching details create the perfect drapey look so they you can look effortless yet chic at your next wedding. Mothers of the bride can opt for a gown which screams simple yet elevated at their daughter’s wedding. If you are a wedding guest, you can bare a shoulder in the most flattering of ways by choosing a style with pleated qualities.


Details Upon Details

Ruching and pleats are a detail within themselves, but when you add them to a gown with another sculptural detail, you have won the jackpot. When you are choosing to wear a plain coloured dress, it is a great idea to be on the lookout for a style which has detailed qualities. Pleats along the waist add a sense of elegance to a simple dress, and a detailed neckline is the cherry on top. The perfect style for a wedding guest or a cocktail party goer is a classic colour with details galore.


Simple Yet Elevated Silhouettes  

A simple off the shoulder dress can be taken to the next level with small ruching details. Not only is is flattering for those who are after a fitted dress but don’t want it to be too skimming, it also adds an extra layer to the dress, creating the perfect simple little black dress or cocktail dress for your next special event. Pair a cocktail dress with sparkling jewellery to take it that extra mile.
