Hawthorne & Heaney for A V Robertson

Hawthorne & Heaney for A V Robertson London Hand Embroidery

If you follow our Instagram, then  you may have seen our post earlier in the week about the Fashion East show which we were delighted to have played a part in.  The mancunian designer, A V Robertson who specialises in embellished womenswear created a collection of elegant looks with an abundance of 3D leaves and hand embroidered elements. We were responsible for creating the leaves and petals that grow out of the garments, each of which was individually hand made.

The process started with making hundreds of meters bias binding which would seal and finish each of the pieces. As you can see Amie from A V Robertson had chosen a very exciting colour palette to work with, so there were many combinations to choose from.

After pressing all the binding into shape, it was then applied to the center fabric that made up the body of the leaves.

Hawthorne & Heaney on Joshua Kane SS17

Hawthorne & Heaney on Joshua Kane SS17 London Hand EmbroideryOur regular readers will be familiar with the long standing creative relationship that Hawthorne & Heaney have with Joshua Kane and his SS17 collection was no exception. This season we produced a series of tie pin/brooch roses which embellished a large proportion of the collection.

The roses are available in Black Satin, Teal Velvet, Crushed Purple Velvet and Printed Black and White Silk. Below is a little taste of the looks from the runway.

They fasten onto the lapel with a silver stiletto tie pin back .Hawthorne & Heaney on Joshua Kane SS17 London Hand Embroidery

They lend themselves well to both embellishing a dinner jacket or adding a sartorial touch to a more casual suit jacket. Hawthorne & Heaney on Joshua Kane SS17 London Hand Embroidery

Along with being worn on clothing, Kane has also shared the roses styled with some of his other accessories: Hawthorne & Heaney on Joshua Kane SS17 London Hand Embroidery
