Wedding designers and dressmakers, along with lots of excited brides-to-be, are gearing up for February, an annual high point on the bridal calendar. February, along with being the month of Valentine’s Day, also plays host to National Wedding Week in the UK - more news on this coming soon!
Platinum Bridal Fabrics are getting things started with our exclusive offer for January which will be of particular interest to wedding dress designers, allowing them to stock up on polyester - essential wedding dress material and make big savings. The more you buy - the more you save! Check out two of our favourite polyester fabrics below:
Duchess Satin - Contessa
This matt fabric is often used to create full skirts on a wedding gown, which are currently extremely en vogue (see our recent Bride Guide). Contessa is created in Japan using a twisted-yarn process to give a deep, dense weave and a signature firm, non-snag handle that means the fabric consistently holds its shape. Contessa is available in a choice of 20 colours - check out our gallery to see a photograph of a gorgeous gown created by ChantelleSophia Bridalwear using Contessa Satin in a rich Cappuccino tone.
Taffeta - Elegance
The perfect name for the perfect fabric, Elegance encapsulates all that is ideal in a wedding dress material. A deep and beautifully-absorbing amount of body is provided by its crisp, fresh handle, ensuring that it is perfect for structured designs though its feather-light weight means that it still has an ethereal, flowing quality. Elegance is finished with a sheen that is at once striking and subtle.
There are just two of the 36 polyester fabrics currently available with a 10% discount, exclusively from Platinum Bridal Fabrics. Enjoy browsing the full range!
