Textile Embellishments: Italian Quilting

Textile Embellishments Italian Quilting Before I talk about the technique I’ve developed for my bags, Italian Quilting I’m going to tell you a bit about where my love of textiles came from. I became familiar with the textile embellishments Italian Quilting and Trapunto when I was a student at Middlesex University. I would spend hours in the library devouring two books in particular, Lanvin and Geoffrey Beene. They both used trapunto quilting on their creations and…

Fast Fashion V Slow Fashion

An Impossible Choice: Fast Fashion V Slow Fashion

Fast Fashion V Slow Fashion My brand really believes in the Slow Fashion movement so it seemed fitting to illustrate the differences between Fast Fashion V Slow Fashion in my article written for Utelier. In this consumer, trend driven era of value-less clothes, you’re now able to change your outfit up to three times a day, should you so desire. The trend for cheaply produced, throwaway fashion can be traced back to the early noughties…

BALENCIAGA MASTER ARCHITECT OF COUTURE

The king is dead. When Women’s Wear Daily ran this headline in March 1972 no one in the fashion world would have had any doubt as to whom it referred. There was only one king of couture, the one whom Christian Dior called ‘the master of us all’, while Coco Chanel said he alone was ‘a couturier in the truest sense of the word… The others are simply fashion designers.’ Vogue summed it up in…

PROCESS

Crafted is our first brand aesthetic and at Pamela_P HQ the crafting process is something we really love. I develop all of our processes through prototyping them. It’s a very long, labour intensive undertaking but when I’m happy with the results, and can use them, then it’s worth all of the effort.
