Designer Melanie Talkington Of Lace Embrace Atelier
Q: What inspired you to create garments which have a period style?
A: I’ve always loved the history of fashion and especially the undergarments that modified the body shape. It’s wonderful to imagine a time when people truly enjoyed fashion and dressed for occasions. Each layer of clothing has a story and purpose, it’s all so inspiring and fascinating!
Q: Is there a particular time period you feel your designs are best suited for?
A: I used to be quite strictly Victorian/ Edwardian. Now I’m inspired by upcycling beautiful antique lace, bohemian with a touch of eroticism and blending a variety of eras.
