textile-exhibition

2

so we went to the textile exhibit in the National Museum the other week and lemme tell you those people knew what they were doing

so here are Muslim Mindanao and Lumad-inspired pieces (probably also a bit of Alexander McQueen and D&G aesthetic inspirations here and there)

This beautiful silk costume is on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum’s new ‘The Fabric of India’ exhibition. It was designed by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla for the most expensive Bollywood film of all time: Devdas. The decorative mirrorwork made the dress exceptionally heavy; it could only be worn for promo shots.

Check out ArtMastered’s official Instagram account for more preview images of this great exhibition - and give us a follow if you’re feeling generous! All images, including the above, are my own.

Busy day today stretching my first batch of completed embroideries for my solo show in August. These started as machine embroideries, but now comprise of machine and hand stitch in almost equal measures. I have filled in the background of the work with areas of seeding in silk embroidery thread. I have goldworke areas and have also sewn lots of crystals into the work making it twinkle in the light. 

My next set of work will be machined out onto different fabric and will feature more shaded work.
