Vicki Lafford-Garside – Kingfisher Brooch
Growing up in rural Oxfordshire Vikki had an appreciation for the countryside and a fascination with nature and wildlife. This love of nature and a passion for art and textiles led her to achieve a degree in Embroidery, followed by a Master’s degree in Textile design in 2006. Since then she has worked as a designer-maker of textile accessories and wedding dresses and in 2016 received the awards of Best Independent Designer and Best in Show at Art Couture festival for her wearable art costume entitled ‘Ocean’s Last Gasp’.
Using embroidery, cutwork, heat manipulation and hand painting techniques, Vikki transforms simple fabrics and thread into unique and entirely wearable, decorative and colourful accessories and textile jewellery to wear and treasure.
