Textiles in Jewellery
I had a whirlwind trip to Paris Fashion Week of which I saw some mesmerising designs (and thankfully the Eurostar delays did not phase me!)
The designs that particularly attract my attention seem to be a theme of jewellery using textiles. The brand Wear and Tear who were exhibiting at The Box, have some amazing metallic knitted necklaces, bracelets and brooches. The designer Cheung Lik uses all hand crafted techniques with tactile fabrics that are really wearable.
Some amazing pendants and brooches from Natsuko Ebe caught my eye - she uses broken dolls heads to create these innovative styles.
A more quirky take on beaded jewellery are the designs from Marianne Batlle who pays homage to fashion and music legends in finger puppet size bead work.
