About Vikki Lafford Garside

Like many young girls, I dreamt of being a princess in a fairy tale, with sparkling crystal slippers and beautiful, flowing gowns of the most sumptuous fabrics, adorned with exquisite embroidery and embellishment. I imagined a world of fairies and woodland creatures inhabiting the gloomy depths of the Cotswold Countryside in which I spent my childhood.

My love of detail and embellishment was always a huge inspiration for my work and it led me to achieve a degree in Embroidery in 2002, followed by a Masters Degree in Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art and Design. There I created my first collection of dresses based on old versions of popular fairy tales.

Now working as a designer-maker I am still inspired by the fairy tales, folklore and nature I appreciated as a child. I mix traditional hand stitch and hand painting with innovative techniques of stitch, print and heat manipulation to create feminine, hand crafted dresses and accessories. My fashion accessories collection features individually hand crafted brooches and clips in luxury fabrics, adorned with intricate embroidery, Japanese glass  beads, Swarovski crystals and freshwater pearls.
