Most of us love to dress up in lace. It has been one of the most sort after fabric this season. Cute lace mini dresses, maxis, fancy tops, etc. In the spirit of the current trend, we thought the timing was appropriate to delve into the history of the special fabric; particularly Austrian lace.
Below is a documentary produced and directed by long time friend, Bola Balogun for Glam Networks. Balogun collaborated with The Austrian Embroidery Association, Commercial Section of the Austrian Embassy and the most important people in this trade system; The ‘Lace Ladies’. The ‘Lace Ladies’ are the ones who buy directly from the manufacturer and sell to the designers.
It is important to note that Nigerians import more Austrian lace than any other country. Please watch the short documentary video below. Enjoy.. xo
