More is More
Name: Vien Le Wood, embroidery designer at Rebecca Taylor
Favorite piece from this season: Sequin print dress
Most unusual embellishment used: at university, I embellished pieces of toast with seeds and beads for a country rustic themed project that i laid out in a lunch box. I also knitted swatches out of grass
Longest time spent on an item: Six months embellishing a fountain dress, inspired by the quarry moss gardens at Belsay Hall. I created an encrusted organic fountain dress where water trickled from the neck, eroding and rusting the materials. Over time, algae formed so it related back to the garden.
Listening to: At the moment I’m really loving grave wave: lo-fi goth-electronica music that’s a bit dark, but dancey!
