Cruise 2019 Show – Savoir-Faire: Lace


Maria Grazia wanted to rework a vintage dress. She was eager to recreate
this very aged effect. She had us rework a collar,
a ruffle, this one specifically. So we began by looking
at the embroidery archives, at the techniques that
were used, that my grandfather used, that my great-grandfather used too. We reworked this design stitch by stitch
in order to apply the cotton flowers to it. So, there she’s drawing the flowers. Once the design has been marked out,
we do the programming, which means setting out the movement the thread
will make on the frame to embroider and start making
a flower, if it’s a flower. Once we’ve written the score,
there comes the musical instrument. We feed the bobbins with the
correct threads and leave it to work, there’s enough for
hours and hours of work. Here, we cut out the flowers to reveal the cotton and
the guipure at the same time, which adds a sense of
substance to the ruffle. © Potencier Broderies
