“I consider lace to be one of the prettiest imitations ever made of the fantasy of nature; lace always evokes for me those incomparable designs which the branches and leaves of the trees embroider across the sky, and I do not think that any invention of the human spirit could have a more graceful or precise origin.” Coco Chanel, April 29, 1939.
The origin of this material is disputed by historians but it is claimed to be a French invention. These days, lace comes back into the fashion industry year after year. From the beginning of spring to the end of summer, lace brings a dash of seductive charm of delicate gesture, adding to the midsummer nights a touch of romantic and charming colors.
Over a decade, lace has placed a very strong role in my style. I find the beauty of the material enchanting. I have incorporated numerous key pieces into my wardrobe and special occasions; from my prom dress, to my wedding dress and from midi skirts, to fitted dresses.
The reason why this specific material is so popular today is not because of its long and glorious history, but it’s sweet and graceful style. The timelessness, elegance, and romance of it will forever have a significant place in my style.
