There is no denial that embroidery is a big part of fashion these days. Since its re-emergence into style in the year 2017, the love towards embroidery is hardly diminishing rather the trend is still going really strong. Designers and fashion brands can implement and include embroidery as patches on denim jackets and floral-inspired designs on jeans to intricate patterns flowing on dresses, as embroidery has the ability to enhance the overall look of a garment with its versatile craft.
Irrespective of its production types such as hand-made or machine-made each piece of embroidery is a piece of art. Fashion designers around the world know how impressive and exquisite their design can become if they induct embroideries in their creations and clothing lines.
In this article, we are going to mention four fashion designers who have used embroidery in their garments effectively.
1. ALICE ARCHER
This London-based fashion designer opts for a complex method of embroidery by mapping out every single stitch of a design on a computer and from then on she created her intricate designs while hand-stitching every garment. Moreover, Alice never compromised with fabrics as she used top-quality material to create luxury garments. Interestingly, her garments are also good for daily wear besides being durable and washable.
This Doha-based Palestinian fashion designer is aiming to bring her country’s traditional cultural heritage through her work. Her use of embroidery patterns known as ‘ Prints of Palestine’ is inspired by special dresses of Palestinian women who wore on special occasions. In order to bring her root back, she incorporated aesthetic values with the help of embroidery but not through stitching through printing.
