  • A June Wedding in Paris - We Love Our Customers

    We recently received this message from our customer Denise:

    "Hi - I just wanted to send you a photo of a wedding gown I've just finished for a client, using silk and lace that we purchased at Britex. The bride fell in love with your Chantilly lace, and splurged! There are a few more photos on my page, with more to be added later, especially one of her in the gown. I hope you enjoy!
    Thank you so much! She's getting married in Paris in 2 weeks, I can't wait to get the pro photos of her in the dress, out in the garden! And, just an FYI, we bought 3 yds of the Chantilly fabric, 15 yds of the lace trim and 15 yds of the Thai Silk - we both couldn't be happier with everything from Britex! Douglass helped us with the silk and lace, and I know he isn't online at home, so maybe you could show him the photos? I'd really appreciate it - We can't thank him enough!

    Thanks again,
    Denise!
