Let’s talk about the different fabrics of evening gowns on this article. This is important to know especially before you book an appointment to your stylist down the road.

  • Chiffon is a delicate lightweight fabric that is made from silk and rayon. It is popularly used in making sheer sleeves and wraps.
  • Crepe is a soft and thin fabric with a crinkled surface. It is used to add layers and style to most gowns.
  • Organza is a crisp and sheer like chiffon but with a stiffer texture similar to tulle but more flowing. Popularly used in skirts, sleeves and overlays
  • Tulle are often used in ballerinas’ costume and bridal veils. It is a thin net fabric with a great body.

It is important to know the fabric since every gown can look and feel different on them. Depending on the material used it can produce a distinct effect to your gown. Some fabrics cling to the body while other flows away. Personally I like the natural fiber of Silk as I love its elasticity, strength and elegance.
