I've been sharing quite a bit of lace inspiration recently. The Haute Couture Club of Chicago will have a lace challenge at our next meeting. What usually takes place is our speaker will have about 45 minutes to give their presentation. Then we move into the challenge. Everyone who participates will have made something that they feel fits the criteria of the challenge. They put on their garment and then explain what they have done. It's always a lot of fun to see what everyone has made. So I am hoping that with all the inspiration that I've found, we'll have some knock out pieces for our fashion show which will be Sunday, May 7, 2017.
When I was looking for a fashion show of the Valentino 2017 Resort Collection last week, I stumbled upon the Oscar de la Renta Resort Collection. It's a beauty! This collection also showcases a number of lace pieces that I thought were especially lovely.
The collection mixes tweeds with lace and little sweaters. Love the peek-a-boo lace near the hem.
Lace godets add an airy touch to a tweed dress.
Love this little flapper inspired lace cocktail dress. Perfect combination of 2 laces and feathers.
This dress has applied lace on the tulle. The back of the bodice is lace.
Lace insets in the jacket.
Crochet is also a form of lace.
Love the combination of the stretch lace tee with the pieced skirt.
I left the last 2 images in their larger size so you could really see the application of the lace. So pretty.
If you would like to see more still pictures from the collection, you can find them HERE at Vogue.com.
There are many other pieces that are especially pretty, and there's nothing better than actually seeing the clothes move, so I've included the fashion show below. It's not too long :)
Hope you enjoyed the show!
Have a great week!!!
