Instant Classic: Tapestry Motif

Needlepoint work, more precisely tapestry (a form of textile art) is known to be a hobby of Marie Antoinette (queen of France) and now becomes an inspiration for well-known designers such as Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain, Derek Lam and others. This summer, everything has been coming up roses-elaborate embroidered roses. As I have written in one of my posts fashion is an art form and you can see the correlation in the pictures below.

"The intricate craftsmanship doesnt come cheap-but it is the price you pay to have everytone on pins and needles." - Michelle Guerrere
