FROTH AND FRILLS

You know it when you see it. Defined, froth and/or frills consist of many yards of lightweight tullles and chiffons in whites or pastel colors. It can mean ruffles, poufed headpieces and flounces of organza petticoats; diaphonous layers of silk gauze. I'd say Max Chaoul and Monique Lhuillier are at the top of the list--master handlers of the art of the frill.
