Trend Watch | The Amazing Lace

Dec 28, 2012  |   Contributor: Nicolle Keogh

There is one luxury fashion trend that has been around for hundreds of years and seems to never go out of style. Popular since the 15th Century, lace is and always has been a treasured decorative element due to its delicate workmanship and airy patterns— which is why it’s usually reserved for formal wear, bridal fashion, and elegant accents.

And if there’s one thing we can say after watching the Spring 2013 shows, it's that lace is here to stay.... Read More
