Fabrication: The Story Behind a Gown

Sajanee Chopra, Intern

The wedding gown is one of the toughest choices a woman has to make for her big day. Each dress has plenty of details that bring it together - zippers, buttons, silhouettes, interlinings - to say the least.  Yet, every gown has to start somewhere - the fabric.  Fabric is the "Once upon a time..." in the fairy tale, and it's where it all begins!

Some of the most common types of fabrics for wedding dresses are silk, satin, organza, tulle, taffeta, and of course lace.  The way each material is used, cut, and combined with other fabrics creates a story - it could be your story!

Alençon lace, which originated in Alençon, France, is a needlepoint lace with a feminine floral design on a sheer net background. This combination of an alençon lace peplum bodice and  a silk duchess fit-to-flare skirt makes up this beautiful Paloma Blanca gown to create a modern and elegant look. 

A perfect balance between chiffon and tulle, silk organza is popular in giving a bridal gown movement. Watters Dakota's structured and edgy feel is composed from a silk organza dropped waist bodice accompanied by a distressed ruffled skirt for a little fun. 

Tulle, a light weight, very fine netting, is no longer used just to create full skirts anymore. Delancy by Amsale's tulle v-neckline gown was designed for the bride that wants a whimsical dress, with movement and a touch of childlike sweetness.
