Modern Lace

This was the most beautiful exhibition of lace I found whilst in Italy. In the village of Sansepolcro in Tuscany, the students from the college had an exhibition showcasing their modern bent on the ancient art of lacemaking. It was exquisite!

I really enjoyed meeting these two beautiful girls (aged 16 and 17) who had an exhibition of their works. They had incorporated the lace into their very modern designs and used fantastic colours to highlight their work!

A close up of the intricate lace work design on the dress which had been made from hand dyed and hand printed silk. These are designers of the future and their work was just unbelievable! I took these photos for my daughter who has now finished her degree in design and is now thoroughly enjoying her working world!
