"Lace - the invention of a goddess and the occupation of a queen"
Lace is an openwork fabric, patterned with open holes in the work, made by machine or by hand.The holes can be formed via removal of threads or cloth from a previously woven fabric, but more often open spaces are created as part of the lace fabric. (Wikipedia)
Lace is an old and all-time favorite. They're usually seen during religious ceremonies in Europe.
Here in the Philippines, Filipinos usually associate lace with their grandmothers for it is an "old" trend.
After those looooooong years, finally, an evolving fashion icon reinvented the art of lace.
In 2011, Kate Middleton, a commoner, tied a knot with the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William. It's every woman's dream to marry a prince charming - as seen in Disney films during childhood days. Now, everybody shall call her as "Princess Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge".
That moment Princess Catherine walked down with her white Alexander McQueen laced gown, lace was reinvented.
Lace is obviously one of the princess' favorites. She made the lace trend came back like a bomb!This is one of my personal favorites, an emerald Jenny Packham pleated gown which she wore at the BOA Olympic Concert last May 11, 2012.
And recently, last June 5, 2012, Kate Middleton was spotted wearing a nude lace dress by Alexander McQueen at the St. Paul's Cathedral for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Service of Thanksgiving.
