Here are two of  Johnathon Simkhai lace garments from his 2016 runway  collection, demonstrating that although lace is a material used hundreds of years ago that it is still very fashionable, perhaps timeless.

The garment structure itself appears very simple , I feel this is due to the fact that the lace itself is already very detailed and nearly even decorative , a more dramatic structure could therefore have made the garment, too much and just plain tacky .I feel that in case I make a garment out of my textiles in the end that I should keep this in mind ,and really consider the placing and use of space in my work , to separate any lace or lace inspired work instead of just allowing the textiles to overpower the entire garment in a unflattering manner.
