Couture in the Cotswolds - community engagement

  • Neil Buchan Grant

Following on from my last post, this is another example of engaging with artisans in my local community. In my first few weeks here in my new adopted town of Cheltenham (since moved to Herefordshire), I came across a dress designer who embellishes her garments with exquisite embroidery. She works with a number of similarly talented milliners and jewellery makers. Within a week we had organised a quick shoot in my little studio, 2 outfits and 2 models.
