The Summer 2013 Collection

Summer is in full swing and a number of exciting trends in bridal lace have emerged. The Platinum Bridal Fabrics Summer 2013 Collection , based extensively on customer suggestions and market research, comprises an exclusive selection of the hottest lace trends for the season.

When viewing all six items in our collection at a single glance, a clear trend for laces of quite an open weave can instantly be detected. This type of lace is perfect for hot summer days, allowing the bride to stay cool and creating an attractive effect as it catches playfully in even the slightest of breezes. Another clear connection between these six summer laces is an emphasis on swirling, pleasingly-feminine curved designs which, as they undulate through the body of the lace, create an effect that is so beautiful as to defy description.

Clarice is one of the most original laces our experienced team have yet seen. Rendered in a delicate pale ivory colour, Clarice lace features an embroidered pattern of abstract windmill shapes which lock together across the fabric. The interlocking 'blades' of the windmills are formed from an attractive yarn that forms an intricate plait down the centre, leading to the trimmed and scalloped edges.

Created to be spectacular, Patience ivory lace is a stunning 55" in width and has been expertly-designed to utilise both lustrous and matt yarns in its manufacture. This juxtaposition of yarns means Patience is a real head-turner, an effect which is enhanced by the lattice of large holes that forms the body of the lace. Completed with a soft and delicate fringed edge, Patience lace captures the very essence of a romantic summer wedding.

Substantial yet ephemerous, Vivienne features an incredibly light ivory tulle base which has been embroidered using lustrous and luxurious ivory thread. This thread forms interlocking loops and swirls which, when viewed together as a whole, form the repeating cascade that is the signature of Vivienne.

Brand New Products - Serena and Suzanne

As part of our ongoing commitment to providing the widest, most diverse range of wedding dress material to our customers, Platinum Bridal Fabrics continue to add new products to our already-extensive range. The two most recent additions to our collection are Serena, a gorgeous ivory wedding lace and Suzanne, a very special ivory lace trim.

Serena ivory lace is composed of a dense and complex floral pattern that commands attention. A soft, guipure lace, it is a generous 52" wide and has been created using many different types of yarn, the most attractive of which is the delicately-subtle silver thread that provides occasional dazzling reflections. This use of multiple yarns means that Serena exhibits a great deal of texture and relief, further adding to the fabric's unique and special qualities. Matching scalloped edges complete Serena which, like our entire range of bridal lace, can be supplied as a full roll, part roll or cut to a bespoke length.

Announcing itself boldly with a curving, sweeping floral design, Suzanne ivory lace trim creates an instant sensation. The trim has a unique dual quality, representing a fine, elegant vintage lace style but with an exciting and modern twist; one edge of the fabric features a dramatically-varying width that is a stunning 9.5" at its widest point, giving an opulent and flamboyant feel. The other edge of Suzanne is traditionally-scalloped and the intricate detail throughout the gorgeous floral pattern is achieved using a variety of expertly-designed corded elements.

Detailed, high-definition images, which can be magnified, of both Serena and Suzanne are available in order to allow our customers to closely examine the beautiful designs.

Our Latest Exclusive Offer

Our latest selection of exclusive offers has been updated and we are now offering a 10% discount on some of our most exciting bridal fabrics. For just one month, this offer will apply to any fabric purchased from the Elasticity, Cameo and Debutante ranges.


A beautifully versatile fabric, Elasticity is a silk stretch satin that is exclusively available in classic ivory. With an expert weave, this breathtaking material is designed to stretch only laterally, resisting vertical stretching and providing a stunning effect.


The Cameo range is rendered in fine silk dupion and offers a generous 44" width. the fabric is composed of an irregular weave which allows the miniscule nips and slubs to remain evident. Also referred to as raw silk, this fabric is the choice of several haute couture designers and its firm yet soft texture lends it a great versatility. Expertly-woven in India, fabric from the Cameo range is available in a choice of 13 colours, from classic white and ivory to vibrant sapphire, jade and silver.


Arriving on the bridal scene with elegant style and panache, the Debutante collection is so striking that it has become a staple of corsets, theatrical costumes and avant-garde fashion. A smooth and crisp fabric, Debutante is yarn-dyed, meaning that the colouring is not achieved through a piece-dying process but rather from the combined warp and weft yarn at the weaving process. The process creates a fabric with a 'shot effect' that is truly eyecatching. 10 exciting colours are available in the Debutante range, from the truly arresting onyx to the subtle yet intriguing tone of burnt orange.
