Polyester evening dresses lead, princess styles pick up

The fabric's strength and versatility make it the top material for the line, while princess motifs draw increased attention.


  • Polyester models strong: Makers often utilize synthetic fabrics for their strength and stain resistance. Polyester, acetate, nylon, rayon and viscose are the typical options, with the first dominating. Several suppliers also adopt pure or blended silk. Georgette, jersey, chiffon and organza are the popular constructions as these are light and diaphanous. Satin is also widely used for its sheen and softness.
  • Construction details: Most gowns have strapless, sweetheart, bateau or V-shaped necklines. Although sleeveless designs are mainstream, some companies still roll out pieces with cap or long sleeves. The common skirt cuts are A-line, pencil, bouffant and mermaid. These may be pleated, layered, gathered or picked-up.
  • Motifs & embellishments: Solid-colored dresses are popular. Ivory, purple, pink, fuchsia and royal blue are the usual shades. These can be adorned with lace, embroidery and beads. Currently, princess styles highlighted by flounces and 3D flowers are gaining ground.
