In today’s final fabric 101 installment, Henry tips us off on taffeta.
Taffeta is sleek, elegant and regal; it exudes vintage, has body, holds its shape and it drapes like a dream. Michelle and I love to use taffeta because, like Lace (see yesterday’s 101), it is classic and can be used in both traditional and fashion-forward ways.
We feature taffeta in the following Henry Roth designs
1. Choose ballgown Ireland if you adore the regal elegance of traditional taffeta festooned and flounced featuring stunning lace and Swarovski beading.
2. The combination of taffeta, tulle and gorgeous beaded appliqués is dreamy in style Kaz, is ideal for garden and beach weddings.
3. Kathy has just about all the asymmetrical glamour that we can handle with its contoured bodice with divine beading and scalloped edging lace on the tulle skirt
Who wears it?
The romantic and traditional as well as the relaxed and fashion forward who are looking for just a touch of glamour. One of our favourite brides who chose Taffeta last year was Real Bride Athena who wore her Ireland gown twice over, once at a ceremony in Wiltshire UK and all over again at a country ceremony in the Australian bush (check out a selection of Athena’s photographs here: http://www.henryroth.com/realbrides/athena.html and here: http://www.henryroth.com/realbrides/athena-1.html
