English term or phrase: an angel hair evening gown
Translation of a press release on fashion collections.

Here is the whole sentence:
The fabrics embrace the magic. Day is dressed in tweeds of crepe and raw silk or radzimir. Finely pleated, transparent and pure collars and cuffs are a breath of life to suits and low-cut evening gowns.
Pearly pink edges for a slit dress, an angel hair evening gown as light as a whisper, embroidered petals, wind-swept feathers and abstract flowers… make the night magical.

robe de soiree en cheveux d'ange


Explanation:
Des cheveux d'ange sont des franges de tissu, comme a l'epoque Charleston, c'etait des robes courtes pour aller danser. Tout le vetement prend vie grace qu mouvement inflige. Ce n'est pas une sorte de textile, c'est un design.
