Models like wearing see-through clothes. See-through clothing is any garment of clothing made with lace, mesh or sheer material that allows the wearer’s body or undergarment “” if any “” to be seen through its fabric .Though potentially regarded as controversial, see-through materials have been featured heavily on high-fashion runways since 2006. This use of see-through fabrics as a common element designer clothing resulted in the ‘sheer fashion trend’ that has been predominant in fashion circles since 2008.
The ability to see through things is something that I’ve always been curious about. As a child I would spend long minutes (which at the time seemed like hours) staring intently at my sister’s bedroom door willing my eyes and their magic powers to reveal what it was she was doing so secretly behind it. The same exercise would happen over Christmas time when the mountains of presents would began piling up under the tree many days before the big day, and we would circle them, like wolves stalking their kill, sniffing, prodding, willing them to reveal to us what was hiding inside their pretty foils.
Especially not when I spread my limbs and leap about like an antelope on heat. But that’s the beauty in sheer clothing you see. After leaping about in different (mostly stupid) poses and experimenting with different sizes of underwear I realized that one can tweak one’s sheer garments to suit whatever mood they want to evoke (and however many bits one wants to flash) – and can actually have a heap of fun doing it.
While the majority of this post may be about various degrees of bit-flashing, sheer garments can be worn to flash your other clothes as well. It’s called the art of layering – something that native seem to excel at. Pile on your favorite pieces, chuck a sheer garment over top and you’ve got a real live party going on on your body.
There is no doubt that the same dress will look different if the fabric is different, even looks like two gowns. The fabric a bride selects helps to convey her mood. From the warmth of velvet to the crispness of silk dupioni, the fabric-as well as the gown-has to reflect the individuality of the bride.
What’s exciting about today’s gowns is the variety of fabrics from which a bride can choose. While there will always be gowns made from satins and Alencon laces, a bride today has more choices. To help you narrow your fabric selections, I’ve included information about some of the popular fabrics and some of the new ones making it into salons across the country.
