Meet the Artist – Alex Vincent Turner

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features the Hand Embroidered, Sustainable Fashion of Alex Vincent Turner.

Alex carefully selects each piece and decorates with hand stitch to create a new piece of wearable art. Darning, thread weaving and embroidered motifs all play a part in his beautiful work. https://www.alexvincenttextiles.com/#/

Alex received an The Embroiderers’ Guild – UK Graduate Award in 2019.
