Fabric 101: Tulle

henry

It’s Day 3 of Henry‘s Fabric 101 and today he’s talking tulle.

When Cinderella wed her handsome prince there is no doubt at all that she wore a tulle gown. Tulle is fine and delicate but still has the body and stiffness necessary for creating structure; it’s perfect for creating romance and tradition in a gown. Like organza (see yesterday’s blog), tulle is light but with an element of formality that is ideal for a range of occasions.

Here, we look at our favorite tulle gown silhouettes at Henry Roth:

Karolina-Crop-2-692x10242-540x799

1. Classic tulle ballgown enriched with sparkling highlights like the Henry Roth design Karolina or Kalea.

Harley-View-2-Print-683x1024-540x809

2. 1950s style ballgown like the gorgeous Harley gets romanticized thanks to a tulle skirt and train.

Helena-Full-HI-RES-2-710x1024-540x778

3. Princess is normally a slim, structured silhouette, but on a gown like Helena, a tulle treatment softens the look.

Ina-Diana-Street-2-658x1024-540x8401

4. Straight: Lace and tulle soften the silhouette on a gown like Ina/ Diana. Here, tulle is used to subtly highlight the beauty and detail of vintage-style lace.

5. A-Line gowns can produce a variety of silhouettes. When the style is offered a tulle treatment, the effect is classic, romantic and soft.
Who loves wearing Tulle?

Brides who want traditional fabrication and a touch of formality.

Tomorrow, we wax lyrical on lace.
