There is no delicate sensation and no fragile material that embraces us more than the amazing lace. There is no better choice for an gorgeous outfit than a dress made out of lace.

Synonymous with delicacy, the apparent fragility of the lace is jus an illusion. First inspired by and then liberated from hand-made lace, mechanical laces have been marrying tradition with innovation for 200 years. The textile is the subject of never-ending design research among lace-makers. In in nite shades, textures, techniques and embroideries, it may be transparent or opaque, with oral or abstract patterns, light or three-dimensional.

This summer, the Museum of Lace and Fashion in Calais, dedicated to hand-made and mechanical lace, presents the “Haute Dentelle” (Designer Lace) exhibition. Therefore, ”Haute Dentelle” offers a unique insight into the contemporary uses by fashion designers of lace woven on Leavers looms.
