The Maharaja

The Maharaja exhibition at the V&A was rich in elaborate colour, decorative embelishments and luxurious fabrics. I was drawn to the heavily embellished garments and furnishings, and it is this elemnt that i wish to take from the exhinition and bring into my own work.

After viewing the heavily embellished silk robes I was inspired to explore beading as a decorative technique to create a feeling of luxury and decadence.
