I have chosen my fabrics based on typical bridal fabrics.
Taffeta and Chiffon
Netting and Duchess Satin
Olivia trim and Jupiter trim
The base fabrics will give a range of textures within the collection, as they all have different desirable properties. The trims will allow me to add that element of glamour to my collection.
Taffeta - strong, lightweight, easily structured so will hold shape, delicate sheen.
Chiffon - lightweight, beautiful drape, sheer.
Duchess satin - strong, thicker than satin so is more structured, delicate shine.
Netting - used for the underskirts, is strong and structured so will hold its shape.
Olivia trim - scalloped edge is delicate and flattering, pre-beaded
Jupiter trim - heavily beaded so will add sparkle.
