We have been in the world of haute couture and the mesmerising art of hand-embroidery for over a decade now. And we believe, we are in our most exciting time ever.
There is an increase in appreciation for handwork across the globe. Designers are more willing to experiment with embroidery materials and techniques. Allowing artisans to embrace their creative genius and create magnificent new designs.
In this blog, we will take you on a journey through the most captivating embroidery themes seen on the runways. From delicate craftsmanship, bold hues to elaborate textures, let’s see them all.
Nature, the Forever Muse!
For years now, designers have been bringing to life the wonders of our natural world. Today, however, we are seeing new elements of nature getting featured as well as bold ways of capturing its beauty.
Nature after-all, is an endless reservoir of inspiration for artisans.
Embroidery inspired by the brilliance and opulence of fine jewellery- this is such a seamless merger of two art forms that rely heavily on flawless craftsmanship.
Along with threads and crystals, couturiers are also using intricate metalwork seen in jewellery settings. Jewellery-inspired embroidery doesn’t just adorn garments; it creates wearable art pieces that are destined to become heirlooms.
Motion & Movement!
Incorporating movement in a couture piece is not only about aesthetics but also about creating a captivating vision for the wearer and the audience.
Flowing fabrics, innovative draping, fringes and even kinetic elements are being used to create a sense of fluidity and drama.
It’s like it borrows from architecture to create an immersive experience. It’s a testament to the ongoing innovation and creativity within the fashion industry.
And then there is Kinetic Couture for dresses that move with you and without you. This is a merger of engineering and fashion to create high-tech mechanical designs. Showmanship:
Designers are pushing the boundaries of creativity and craftsmanship to create garments that have a sense of extravagance, theatricality, and grandeur.
It’s a celebration of fashion and everything ‘larger than life.’ Over-sized proportions, voluminous silhouettes, exquisite embellishments and cultural references come together to create a sense of whimsy.
There’s a renewed emphasis on couture craftsmanship, making a statement and eliciting awe-inspiring reactions from the audience.
These themes offer endless possibilities for designers to showcase their creativity and craft, ensuring that every piece becomes a true work of art.
