Workshop at The Lace Center {Harajuku}

I held a lovely and intimate workshop at The Lace Center boutique in Tokyo last Tuesday. This cute little shop, located on the 2nd floor of a quaint red house in one of the narrow streets of Harajuku, specializes in laces from Japan and Europe. There is a big variety of lace items at various prices, mainly affordable, as well as a beautiful selection of clothes by Japanese label Miyaco. Our participants seemed to be enchanted and we had a wonderful time together. I am hoping to hold another workshop there soon, stay tuned!

I caught sight of these gorgeous flowers at the nearby shop today, how beautiful are the details of the petals. Mother Nature is the best inspiration for me!

Embroidery inspiration {Playtime Tokyo}

I wanted to share here on the blog the beautiful and inspiring work of French artist Aurélie Mathigot, who created a trend space for the last February edition of Playtime Tokyo. 
Aurélie focuses on the observation of the everyday objects, tweaking them with stunning embroideries, crochet and ceramic. The installation was named Frozen Landscapes and immersed the visitors into a very poetic atmosphere. I encourage you to check out her series of photographies printed on canvas and embroidered if you love embroideries & art!
