“I want it to fall straight, be weightless and use some mikado on my wedding dress”. Are you sure? Mikado is everything but weightless so it wouldn’t be a good choice. Do you know the difference between mikado and organza? And between crepe and silken tulle?
The fabrics I seek to design with cover a wide range. The difference between them will allow me to achieve a variety of volumes, flow and design. But I can assure you one thing: the common denominator for all of them is the highest quality.
I wouldn’t say I have a favorite fabric since each one tells a different story.
