‘Falling Blossoms’ was Sparklewren’s first ‘Curated Collection’. A capsule selection of designs based on a lusciously opulent technique of cascading and organic lace appliqué. The base cotton and lurex lace was hand painted before the motifs were individually clipped and texturally hand stitched to the corset surface. Clients were able to purchase one of only three initial designs, to be made in their colour preference and bespoke size.
Nevertheless, the technique proved immensely popular: an aesthetic that Jenni continued to explore beyond the initial Falling Blossoms collection, with a number of experimental samples and off-the-rack designs.
