There’s something about embroidery that fascinates me alot! Be it as a childhood memory of wearing embroidered denim or during teenage enrolling myself into classes to learn cross-stitch technique.
Embroidery gives an out of the box appeal & transforms a mundane design into a statement piece.
Despite being an ancient trend it keeps on emerging year after year with a fresh, modern & edgy vibe added to it by young designer & brands. One such brand that used embroidery in an eccentric way for their SS’16 collection is Quirk Box. Inspired from the French Art & Fashion era, this beautifully detailed collection is a perfect combination of vintage with the right amount of quirkiness!
For me, it was a love at first sight with this dress, not just for its intricate detailing but also for the unconventional pop hued French inspired cross stitch embroidery over a quintessential dress. Quite unlike of what Quirk Box is known for (the prints, ofcourse), I loved how for the first time they used this technique to depict art & surpassed their own level of creativity.
Maintaining the simplicity of the dress & not letting the accessories take over the outfit, I decided to go for an ethnic fusion look with silver jewelry & tan handpainted juttis. Messy half tied hair & the brown tinge on the lips perfectly supported the vintage setting.
