Creative Capes for the Super-Stylish!
Our bridal team are fresh back from Paris Bridal 2018 and, as always, the exciting international festival was the perfect place to do some serious trendspotting! One item of bridal wear that has really taken the world by storm recently is the cape; from short and stylish beaded capes to ethereal, flowing chiffon creations, we are head over heels for this particular trend.
Creating a unique cape will be easy for talented designers and here we offer some ideas of the best fabrics to use from our collection.
For beaded capes:
Surrounding these beautiful blooms is a wide and diverse selection of embellishments, from sequins and beads to extra diamantes and an astonishing array of pearls. Further texture and excitement is added with embroidery and silver filigree wire.
Rendered in the inimitable Raschel style, this is a delightful hand-embellished lace.
The edges are symmetrical, each with a feminine fringe and gentle scallops.
For chiffon capes:
Extremely lightweight, this translucent fabric is pure luxury. Formed from 100% silk, Tempest is extremely elegant, its delicate aesthetic delivers a lustrous, floaty appearance.
The fabric is available in no less than 49 colours, ranging from soft pastel tones to vibrant, vivid hues and including classic white and ivory.
For a more cost-effective choice, Benevolence polyester chiffon is hard to beat.
Sourced from Italy and with a lightweight drape and smooth handle.
This fabric is available in a choice of 17 different colours.
