Would You Wear a Wool Wedding Dress?

by Bride Chic

We've been going over 2012 bridal trends the past few Fridays and here's another worth looking into. Have you heard some designers are using wool for wedding dresses? Not too long ago I fashioned the Harlowesque-style above out of wool crepe. Sleeveless with silk flowers on the shoulder and waist it definitely had all the earmarks of a spring bridal gown.

Once Upon a Time…Vintage Bride Chic

by Bride Chic

I'm always picking up tidbits here and there about my first love, vintage fashion.  Last week I learned that dresses that date back further than 1920 are still intact because they're made of 100% cotton.  I always knew cotton is a strong fiber, but to last a hundred years? These intricately embroidered and crocheted gems were once upon a time considered day frocks--the kind of thing you put on to walk about town or go about your biz.  Fast forward a century and what do you...

Eco-Friendly Wedding Dresses take a Turn for the Chic!

by Azure

About Bride Chic I've seen quite a few changes in styles boasting eco-fibers in the last few years, both in bridal and main line fashion. Once upon a time, say twenty years back, green-friendly fabrics looked pretty raw, loosely woven and just a few grades above burlap. Fast forward to 2011 and fiber developers as well as suppliers are getting the message- brides want eco-friendly alternatives but don't necessarily want that tattered, Issey Miyake look anymore. Treatments have...
