You’ve met our brand name: Chiffon & Lace – which we personally love very much :)

It’s something close to our hearts. Chiffon and lace are wedding gown materials which are highly sought-after in the wedding scene. Of course there are other fabrics commonly used in the bridal fashion industry, such as satin, silk, taffeta, tulle, organza, the list goes on..

The Chiffon & Lace name originated from an animated discussion we had in a Sunway cafe during one cool evening in 2008.

Back then, we had tried a lot of combination. They all didn’t sound quite right. That is, until we put those two materials together: Chiffon & Lace – it sounded feminine, it sounded catchy, and the words just slide off your tongue. Most importantly, it was memorable. A brand of wedding gown was born :D

Now let’s deconstruct the brand name and learn a bit more about the materials which inspired the brand and our wedding gown designs.

What is Chiffon?

Chiffon is a sheer fabric made with silk or rayon. It is a very versatile material that creates stunning bridal gowns which accentuates the natural curves of the bride. Nothing is more wonderful than the gentle undulation of chiffon in a soft breeze as the bride glides gracefully down the aisle. The nature of Chiffon is light-weight and sheer, making it an ideal choice for a wedding dress in tropical countries such as Malaysia. Chiffon gowns also travel very well – they are easy to steam and any wrinkles from packing can be removed by simply hanging them.

What is Lace?

Lace is a delicate fabric which complements the femininity of the wedding gown. There is a large selection of lace in the market – French lace, Alanson lace, organza lace, Venice lace and so on. Lace on a gown portrays a classy look, bordering on the antique. Not to be overused, careful application of lace and its myriad intricate patterns will impart shine to the wedding gown and its wearer.

And now, back to our brand…

The Chiffon & Lace brand embodies the qualities of the materials which inspired the name, and a whole lot more. We don’t compromise on quality. That’s our guarantee :)
