Queen Victoria got married in a white lace dress, and since then, lace has become intricately tied with notions of femininity. The royal figure is also the same person we can credit for white wedding gowns becoming a symbol of purity and innocence.
The art of lacemaking dates back to 16th century Europe, where it was painstakingly handmade. Its costly price tag meant that it was solely reserved for the rich and royals.
