My 47 “Floating” Embroidery Designs That I Hand-Stitch On Tulle


I create these embroideries which are inspired by fashion and haute couture. I stitch colorful threads into tulle to create 3D-effect artwork.

When I was in school, I did not have a particular attraction to the work that we did in the lessons of Home Economics. And since childhood, everything, whether sewing an apron at school or drawing the next landscape in the lessons of fine art, was done for me by my beloved grandmother. In my student years, I became interested in everything new that appeared in the fashion world. After repeatedly reviewing the work of many clothes designers, I decided to take a chance. But it was not so simple to create voluminous and beautiful work. Only hard work, developing own style and correcting my mistakes gave me the opportunity to achieve the desired result.

In September 2015, I was deeply interested in embroidery, I worked on dense fabrics. In 2016, I attended the sewing courses, one of our tasks was to sew a blouse. Seeing the embroidered dresses from Valentino, Elie Saab, Dior, I decided to create an air blouse from tulle with embroidery.

My technique is a combination of many shades of threads – organized chaos. I like to work with tulle, as it is a transparent fabric that makes embroidery visually more voluminous. I do not make sketches before I start working, I usually know I want to embroider something specific, such as an eye. I make the contours and select shades when I’m already in the process. I am attracted to bright saturated colors, so I often try to integrate them with harmonious colors, but try not to make it too flashy. In summer 2017,  I visited the Ecole Lesage School in Paris and from that time  I  decorate my work with Luneville embroidery. This school is the only one where I studied embroidery. Everything I did before was intuitive. I like it when there is a moment of improvisation in the work.

My inspiration is the success of other people. When I have the opportunity to observe the creative development of the artist, to see how an idea turns into a complete result, for me, there is no greater inspiration. Also, life-affirming films, books, and exhibitions support me and my desire to create.
