Knitwear haute couture.
Wedding dress by knitted textile designer Jemma Sykes. A jewel in Jemma’s knitwear collections.
The dress is absolutely gorgeous. I just wonder how heavy it is… You really need to love knitwear to put on the equivalent of all the stash that you have in your house on your very special day. Would you dare?!
Jemma lives and works in London, but travels extensively with her lectures on knitwear design. She uses both hand knitting and machine knitting techniques in her collections. “Her diverse portfolio is fueled by the possibilities of the knitted stitch and aims to challenge the preconceived ideas of the craft to hopefully inspire.”
You can look up more of Jemma’s designs on her website.
Have a nice crafty weekend!
