I used to work for a very small design brand that used vintage lace in many of their designs. I looked forward to the visits that supplier Jennifer Osner would make to the studio with her suitcases full of vintage lace and trims. She now has a great Etsy store with a huge collection of trims available for easy purchase. I found these photos of 2008 Project Runway contestant Rami Kashou's beautifully constructed dress made from many yards of antique 1910 French lace purchased from Jennifer. I love how the underlaying gold lamé sets off the lace trim and the directional cut of of the lace creates a bold graphic pattern. Check out Jennifer's full site HERE.
