Lace from Caudry takes center stage when worn by Michelle Obama
Michelle Obama, seen leaving church on Easter Sunday, wore a dress made entirely in Caudry lace by the designer Peter Soronen.
The lace for the spring dress was produced in Caudry byJean Bracq SAS, a lace manufacturer specializing in high-end lace which has already produced fabric for Marilyn Monroe and, more recently, for the gown Hillary Clinton wore to the inaugural ball of her husband. The lace was then printed on by the Avesnes-lez-Aubert company Dominique Bracq Industries SAS known above all for embellishment, bleaching and dyeing of fabric. The lace is an ivory/silver Caudry lace, over- printed in 6 colors, rose, purple, salmon and three different greens, giving the appearance of refreshing flower bouquets. The lace was ordered in September for Peter Soronen, who was hoping to produce a dress for the inauguration. The first lady chose another dress for the ceremony, keeping this ensemble for another time: Easter Sunday.
