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.

One Week Left!

Finished another final today! Which means so far I have 5 totally finished and another 4 that are nearly finished, a few of them just need a few sequins stringing on so hopefully I can get everything done! Out of all my designs, this was my least favourite... until I pinned on to this mannequin, having it pinned around the shape has totally transformed the look of the design as the shapes on it really fit the body well I am really happy with this design even though I struggled with it at first. With it being digital print, adding embroidery to it made me feel like I was just filling in parts and not really adding anything to the design. I ordered more sequins from Josy Rose (http://www.josyrose.com/) picking amazon green and metallic reds as I knew that they would really stand out on the design with out making it look to halloweeny.
