The manufacture of lace dates back to fourteenth-century France, where it was used exclusively by clergy of the Catholic church. Lace then became fashionable, and lace-making spread throughout eastern and western Europe in the sixteenth century. Lace is made either by hand or machine, and is differentiated by the way the stitches are connected. My favourites are Chantilly Lace and Guipure Lace. The designers have presented a myriad of types of lace this year in their Runway Fashion and Ready to Wear designs.
