About Me

I am a textiles surface designer with a great understanding of its function and application. I specialise in hand embroidery, embellishment and in prints for fashion. I am a passionate, experimental, and am unafraid to take risks or to push boundaries with my work. Because of this, I am the kind of person suited to the fashion industry which has ever changing rules, challenges and expectations. All images and text are copyright to Stacie Charlton.

More Embroidery....

I'm really getting into this now! I feel really motivated to finish this piece even though its taking so long, I feel really inspired and this is helped by recent sponsorships which I am so pleased about. I have even reworked and created new designs to incorporate more embellishments!
My brief was inspired by 'drama' and mix match trends, mixing the old with new and the ordinary with the unexpected, so I am trying to stick to a colour palette of blacks, greys, nudes, khakis and subtle blues and purples, but with an injection of neon's to liven it up a little bit.
I feel like I have really been pushing my self with my embroidery and trying to find unusual materials, metal findings and ways of distorting materials to make my embroidery different and so far its working out really well.

I love these sequins! I have mixed together a matt and metallic shade, and also different sizes as I think it makes it more interesting to look at and gives more of a texture.

this is it a while after... I love the layers of sequins and the cluster of mixed embellishments including swarovski crystals. I want my work to look good from a distance, but really impressive when you get close to it and see the amount of work that has gone into it.

I also did a bit more stitching, using seed stitched to build up darker areas and organza.

I have just started filling in with sequins in other areas of the design.. so more to come soon!
