Embroidery is back in a big way as people are now gravitating towards high quality, unique, and more interesting heirloom-worthy pieces instead of plain designer clothing or ones with nondescript prints.
The New York Embroidery Studio, which has provided amazing embroidery for top designers such as Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta, is well aware of the demand for embroidered clothing, which is why their studio is taking embroidery to NYC locals and visitors with a mobile truck. According to Forbes, the truck will be popping up on the streets of The Big Apple this summer and will offer custom embroidery on the spot. Those who want to upgrade their style can have their favourite pieces customized by the studio’s expert embroiders. But you don’t have to be in NYC if you want to upcycle your clothes and accessories with amazing and artistic embroidery. Check out these new ways to revamp your style with colorful embroidery.
Nightlife enthusiasts are back on the scene as nightclubs all over the world have reopened after two years of pandemic-mandated restrictions. As such, making a statement in the latest clubbing wear is a must, and what better way to make a splash than with glow-in-the-dark embroidered gear? Hiphop and gaming fans are all set to turn up in this trend as FaZe Clan recently announced a partnership with Disney, which features hats, t-shirts, and sweatshirts with glow-in-the-dark embroidery, so expect to see these in nightclubs very soon.
If you’d rather make your own designs, consider making aquatic themed fluorescent embroidery on black or midnight blue jackets or dresses– imagine fluorescent jellyfish, seaweed, and fishes coming to life on a dark background. You’ll surely stand out on the dancefloor with such a unique outfit. Meanwhile, if you want a more subtle take on this trend, consider embroidering designs on a pair of canvas sneakers using fluorescent thread. Just make sure to use quality thread to keep the colors vivid for a long time, and when using a washer to clean your shoes, put your shoes in a mesh bag to protect your shoes in the washing machine.
Animal Inspired Embroidery Design
2017 was a big year for embroidered animals on designer clothing, as seen in Gucci’s Spring/Summer collection which featured panthers, snakes, and insects on jackets, tops, shoes, and bags. This year, animals, especially endangered species, are being embroidered on shirts and dresses as animal conservation has become a popular issue all over the world. Try embroidering a single rhino on a polo shirt to make it look like a logo, or several porpoises on a denim purse.
Tattoo artists are getting into the embroidery trend as well and are doing embroidery tattoos on their clients. The tattoo artist makes the design look as though it’s sewn into the skin using an array of advanced techniques and color combinations. You can bring a fabric, embroidered patch, or even a photo of embroidered work to an experienced artist, and they can replicate it with a tattoo gun and ink. Be aware though, that this takes time, and since it’s very intricate, it may not be ideal for those with a low pain tolerance. Those who are into body art can get an embroidery style tattoo of their favorite cartoon character on their ankle. For a cooler, more fashion-forward approach to this trend, consider having a bunch of embroidered tattoo flowers down your back or arm.
Embroidery is a beautiful and artistic way to revamp any plain outfit. Check out these stunning embroidery trends to upgrade your look this year.
