Instructor: Marie-Sophie Lockhart
Skill level: All levels
Description: Join Brooklyn-based embroidery artist Marie-Sophie Lockhart for a class in Fashion Embellishment! Bring your own clothing or accessories — denim jackets, jeans, hats, sneakers — and explore with her how to use embroidery as a medium for enhancing your style.
We will be running three separate sessions of the class. The first two 3-hour events will focus primarily on Fashion Embellishment. Marie-Sophie will provide a variety of her designs and color palettes to choose from. If you do not bring a personal item to work with, pieces of denim fabric will be available for you to stitch and take home.
About Marie-Sophie Lockhart
Marie-Sophie Lockhart’s 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 a few years 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 60s and 70s 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 the London boutique, Browns.
