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.

After finishing the neon bone and adding washers and clock parts, I decided to add a scatter of these under the bone shape on the fabric. I decided not to add more stitches or large sequin shapes on to the fabric as i didnt want to distract too much from the amount of work that had gone on to the bone.

I did still want to make my own sequins using splashes of colour. I used Photoshop to select and layer splashes of dye or paint that had been scanned in along with my drawing sheets and then photocopied this on to acetate. I experimented attaching the sequins together and found the best way would be to pierce each sequin with a  needle and use a tiny little split ring which would still allow the sequins to move. I only wanted the top sequin to be attached to the garment and the rest to hang freely. I also decided to push some of the clock parts through the sequins to tie in all of the different areas of this design. I felt that this brought it all together more as well as still being mix matched.
This is the final finished garment! After playing around with length and composition of the hanging sequins I think the finished design is really strong, works really well and I think this is my favourite design out of them all.
