Lace as we know it evokes images of woven florals and scalloped edges on flounced skirts and collars. Lately we’ve seen some imaginative combinations in bridal wear. Going beyond the the traditionals like Alencon and Chantilly, now you can mix it up with hanmade florals, Venise motifs, galloons, and embroideries on organza and chiffon. Woven into the mix, these laces are making for the kind of cutting edge mingled with romanticism seen in these images.
