Tulle Couture

Recently I have found a new love for tulle.

Last month I designed and made a vintage styled lilac prom dress with a gathered tulle overlay. My first ever impression of tulle was as the classic ballet tutu,


And although I have created a few dresses with tulle overlays before, this particular time it got me thinking about tulle in a whole new way:

As a contrast overlay it adds dynamism , and the changing density of colour great textures. The tulle overlay can evoke ruffled romanticism

Or crisp style lines

Whether it's ruched, gathered or shredded tulle is ultra feminine.

B ut, no matter how classic a material is, it's always due a reinvention.
