Google+ WHAT'S ALEXANDRA WARING?: Spotlight: Embroidery from Game of Thrones

Spotlight: Embroidery from Game of Thrones

Wednesday, 25 September 2013

This week, I found these beautiful images of the embroidery from my latest obsession- Game of Thrones. Although I'm still getting to grips with the story lines a little, the costumes are simply perfection. Most people would agree that even without these close-up shots that the outfits are pretty spectacular (and very worthy of the awards they reaped recently for HBO).

The brains behind these designs is the incredibly talented Michele Carragher who has worked on other HBO series, Elizabeth I, ITV's David Copperfield and Mansfield Park. With over 15 years of experience crafting costumes for all levels of period dramas, Carragher must have been the perfect choice as embroiderer for Game of Thrones- and what embroidery it is! Take a look at her exquisite work below...
