Organza, tulle and nets. Organza fabric is a great option for adding volume to clothes and is often used to make elaborate lehengas, skirts and gowns. It not just looks classy, but is also extremely lightweight and easy to carry.
By definition, Organza is a thin, plain weave, sheer fabric traditionally made from silk. But owing to its vast demand and the varied needs of the market, it started being developed from nylon, polyester, etc. A lot of people love to experiment with Organza as it is very feminine and graceful. It does not have the fall and shape of chiffon or tulle but for voluminous outfits that require sheer, sheen and structure, it works wonders.

BRIDAL TRENDS AND ORGANZA
