Synopsis

A beautiful, elegant, and visually intelligent look-book, Embellished contrasts vintage objects, collected over the years, with cutting-edge contemporary decoration for fashion and textiles. Showcasing a carefully chosen selection of techniques and materials, from tufting to using sequins, the author explores the potential in each of them, pushing materials to their absolute limits in order to create stunningly unique pieces. The author's clients have included Clements Ribeiro, Matthew Williamson, John Rocha, Anthropologie and Designers Guild. Embellished is a visual feast of a journey through the process of inspiration and creativity, illustrating the way in which pieces and processes influence new work and ideas. Combining elements as diverse as exotic feathers, plastic jewellery, buttons, and vintage millinery straw, Karen Nicol will inspire you to come up with lavish creations beyond your wildest dreams.

Karen Nicol is a well-known British textile artist/designer whose clients have included Chanel, Givenchy, Matthew Williamson, Clements Ribeiro, Anthropologie, Designers Guild, and the Powerhouse museum, Sydney. She is a Visiting Professor at the Royal College of Art and exhibits with the Rebecca Hossack Gallery.

Author Choice

This is a very new book, but already one of my favourites. Karen’s distinguished career has included working with designers, exhibiting her own textile art and teaching students. In this very modern and stylish book, she explains how thrifted finds and ancient sewing and embroidery techniques inform her work. It’s a stylish guide to the power and possibilities of textiles and has made me excited about sewing all over again.
