Embroidery using Irish and corneli machines and also hand stitching and beadwork to add depth to the stitching.

I was set the brief from cast creations to create a collection on the theme of “infused” I decided not to look at it from such a literal view and thought up the idea of looking at the city and how there is so much rubbish,tramps and dirt contrasting with the beauty and elegance of flowers "overturned by floral"Thinking about something ugly but making it seem beautiful
Can grunge be beautiful?
For Cast Creation
