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.
With 8 colours of binding, 13 fabric insides and 8 leaf shapes, there were hundreds of potential combinations.
Then it was over to Amie to put her creations all together, if you would like to see the whole collection, click here for the vogue website.
