Why we're still loving lace

Lace was a really strong trend again this year on the Spring/Summer catwalks with influential designers such as Valentino and Alexander McQueen featuring an abundance of lace as part of their collections.

And, as always, the stong trends from the catwalks have already been spotted on red carpets around the world...

Lace is one of the most fabulously versatile fabrics because - as we can see from the two very 'bridal-inspired' red carpet gowns above - lace can be structured and formal in a very demure and classical way, but it can also be very free-flowing and unstructured to create an image of opulent glamour or vintage bo-ho chic.

It is no wonder that lace is still strong in bridal fashion for 2012.  Below are some of our favourite lace gowns for every bride, whether you are hoping to create a classic, formal look or a vision of relaxed glamour...
