Abstract

With so little documentation about the high fashion embroidery, the question arose, “How did the embroiderers find out about the industry?” As part of a qualitative study using oral history methods, I proceeded to ask that question to embroiderers in Paris, London, Milan, and the Lunéville area of France. The purpose was to find out what inspired them to become part of the high fashion embroidery industry and what choices guided their career path.
