Phoenix from the Ashes

Recently, I was flipping through some old files when I found these beauties. They are embroidery samples from Phoenix Hand Embroidery. Anyone working in fashion design in NYC before 2008 remembers Phoenix- they were the gold standard for exquisite embroidery and embellishments, counting elite fashion houses like Stella McCartney and Lanvin as clients. Unfortunately, it closed itโ€™s doors for good back in 2008, with owner Ranjana Khan citing โ€œburn-outโ€ as her reason for closing shop. The designer, and spouse of Naeem Khan, now focuses solely on her jewelry line, which is also pretty exquisite. But I wanted to share these little treasures as they are just so beautiful. My favorite is the pink paillettes hand-stitched in rows on the nude backing- just gorgeous.
