Here’s a sneak preview of the work so far towards the Fashion & Embroidery show at the NEC 22-25th March.
The “Coast” dress in progress – based upon studies of Bamburgh beach, before construction, embroidery and embellishment.
And “new” sofa in the background,
I went looking for lace in an antiques shop and came out with a sofa.
As you do.
Sleeves in detail before embroidery – layers of silks and lace.
The untitled as yet “purple” dress (well, top part of).
Hand dyed silks and lace.
The question of the week is this;
”Can I repeat that wonderful dyeing?”
It reminds me of slices through mineral coloured rocks.
Hint of the black Gothic dress and jacket in the background.
