Lace: Amazing Lace - What’s old is new again

January, 2017

Gone are the days of lace being thought of as either risqué or crochet. Today’s lace—in all its interpretations—is as dynamic as the individuals who fancy it. It’s being imposed onto textiles and stencilled onto cakes, upcycled into jewellery and fashioned into apparel. It’s for everyone. Lucky for us, it’s also everywhere. From small shops and galleries to box stores and malls, there’s a place to find lace around every corner.
