Sample (Poiret)

This work is a sequin embroidery featuring a motif reminiscent of embroidery featured on a dress made by Poiret, an early 20th Century fashion designer. The sequins are hand-cut from salvaged domestic plastics and intricately hand stitched on to fabric which has been mounted stretched around a bespoke oak wood frame. The concept and construction are inspired by the traditional practice of the couture fashion house, making embroidery samples as part of the design process. The materials hint at ideas related to the culture of disposability, make-do-and-mend, consumerism, and maybe even post-apocalyptic futures.
