TEXTILES AND THE REMARKABLE WORK OF THE EMBROIDERER
In the most recent issue of Styling magazine on Page 82 we featured a 24 page story on trimmings and textiles called 'The Silk Road'. We were inspired by the wonderful paintings of Chinese artist Abraxis Der Jen. Each spread features one of her paintings of a young women dressed in beautiful silk embroidered robes, rich with embellishment and styled with flowers, gold and precious stones. We went in search on-line to find similar trimmings, fabrics and decorations all still available today and highly sort after for styling and costume making. To read the story just click here.
Great design is, and always has been, a matter of mixing rich colours and beautiful hand made textiles together.
