Chiffon & Georgette

Here you can find lightweight and translucent silk fabrics such as chiffon, georgette, organza and the like. Organza differs from the others above mentioned mainly in behavior - while chiffon is soft and loose, organza is stiff and rough to the touch. Chiffon is often confused with georgette, but chiffon is softer and has more luster than georgette.

Silk chiffon is wonderfully sheer. Light and diaphanous, it drapes beautifully and flows gracefully with every movement. Show it off in full-length, layered dresses or pantsuits, romantic trains, wide sleeves, evening gowns and wraps. If you are aiming for a fairy princess wedding gown, silk chiffon is just the thing.

Because chiffon is transparent, we recommend using a lining layer – something light, like habotai or a silk modal blend, or something a bit heavier, such as satin. Chiffon is quite a bit like georgette, but smoother, with a higher sheen, so it combines best with other smooth fabrics (satin, duchesse). An interesting effect can be obtained by layering chiffon with lace. And, if you’re feeling inspired, chiffon can even be decorated with silk paints.
