We designed a scalable brocade pattern repeat. The pattern was applied to purple velvet fabric with emBELLAtex® paste and silver glitter.
The glitter does not flake! It permanently bonds with the fabric to create a raised design. The embossing is permanent, lightweight and flexible.
The gold pattern is raised, permanent, lightweight and flexible. The center of each "Damask" repeat features a beaded lace appliqué.
The scalable pattern was adjusted so that the repeats fell to enhance the length and width of the robe.
Right: All-over Diamond pattern
The "V" neck and cap sleeves of the belted surcoat were embossed with an Arabesque border. The shaped skirt panels were embossed with a large motif to compliment the border. The same motif was used to emboss the sleeves' cuffs.
The tunic was embossed with an all-over diamond pattern on organza over satin. The pattern peaked from under the surcoat at the neckline and between the skirt's shaped panels.
Each petal of the collar held an appliqué accented with navette rhinestones and dimensional sequin flowers near the outer edge.
The lightweight embossed appliqué added a textural contrast to the gossamer collar petals.
