Marie-Sophie will provide design options or you can create your own. We encourage you to bring your own special denim pieces to personalize! If you do not bring a denim item, you will be provided with a piece of denim fabric to stitch on.
About Marie-Sophie Lockhart
Marie-Sophie Lockhart is a Brooklyn based Embroidery Artist. All of her creations are hand embroidered, one-of-a-kind and 100% original. Born in the Banlieues (outskirts) of Paris, she began her fashion career on the sales floor of Colette. Fast forward to a few years later and Marie-Sophie lands in New York City. She had been traveling the world, when she met her husband, a Brooklyn based Tattoo Artist. They settled in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Her love for the funky D.I.Y. styles of the 60’s and 70’s inspired her to create spirited folk designs with embroidery.
In 2015, Marie-Sophie launched Lockhart Embroidery, and began using her embroidery skill to create one-of-a-kind denim pieces. Her work caught the attention of Marc Jacobs, who asked her to create the hand embroidery for Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2016 show. She has continued to work with them for their Runway and Ready-To-Wear collections for the past few seasons.
Marie-Sophie counts Christian Dior, Stella McCartney, Barney’s Japan as some of her valued clients, and has created unique embroidery for Drake, Rihanna, Beyonce and Miley Cyrus. You can also find her pieces stocked at London boutique, Browns.
