TREND ALERT: GUIPURE LACE

Aso-ebi nowadays is shifting from our fabulous Ankara, velvet, ever-green George fabric and co. to more sophisticated fabrics; one of which is the Guipure lace.
This fabric is a lace material that has interwoven patterns, a bit stiff because of the embroidery stitches that are closely knitted and very firm in nature.
It is made from polyester rayon and has no net in the background like other laces so you have underline it with another fabric/lining so as not to show unnecessary skin.

The first time I saw the Guipure lace, what came to mind was a cord lace fabric my mum rocked in the early ‘90s. It is true that fashion/trend evolves from time to time, so to me Guipure lace is like an ‘advanced formula’ of the old cord lace.

The white color of this fabric can be used to make wedding dresses (very regal) or used for the traditional wedding attires with some exquisite aso oke/gele.
Other colors can be used to make the bride’s 2nd dress or bride’s maid dresses as well as aso-ebi for all the guests.

Mixing the Guipure lace with other fabrics like Ankara, Adire or even Silk add more depth to whatever style you choose to make out of it. You can use it to make dresses, skirts and blouses or even iro and buba and you get to ‘slay them’ stylishly!

So when next you need to make a decision on aso-ebi for your next parry, Guipure lace is a fabric to look out for.
It’s beautiful, elegant, classy and available in most markets.

    • hi adetutu,
      congratulations to your sister!
      the price range is from N2500 to N7000 depending on the design.
      Most times the plain guipure lace are cheaper than the sequined ones.
      And mixing it with ankara will be fab.
