Our French Lace
The lace we use to manufacture our dresses is carefully chosen from select lace mills in Calais, France. Our unique lace patterns and textures are meticulously handmade using Leaver Looms and century old techniques. Many of our laces are designed exclusively in Calais for Grace Loves Lace in small runs, which is why we recommend our brides order 5-18 months in advance of their wedding date.
Designing and making beautiful French lace garments is woven throughout the ancestry of Grace Loves Lace founder, Megan. Enchanted by the beauty and delicacy of French lingerie, Megan’s Great Grandmother passed down her love for beautiful lace and design through to Megan’s mother, Sally. Growing up in Wales and spending much of her time in France, Sally explored the Lace making regions France is famous for and met her husband there. Inspired by her heritage of successful European designers, Sally’s love for lace detailing paved the way to her success as a lingerie designer. Sally instilled a love for beautiful silhouettes and French lace into Megan from a very young age.
Working from a background in French lace lingerie, and spending much of her childhood in France, Megan has used her passion to create and be around beautiful garments made from the finest materials to build Grace Loves Lace into an entirely new bridal movement. The high quality of our fabrics and the accuracy of our fits is Grace Loves Lace defining point. Our history with French lace and manufacturing allows us to import our textiles directly from France and Italy, hand make our dresses in our production studio in Australia, and directly ship them to our brides in one easy shopping experience. Our streamline process renders obsolete many steps in an otherwise long and complicated distribution chain, so our brides are able to purchase straight from us at the wholesale cost – less than half the recommended retail price. This is precisely why we sell exclusively through our website.
You will not find Grace Loves Lace products overpriced and swimming with the tide in bridal stores.
