Embellished Talk was founded in May 2016 by freelance textiles designer Rebeckah Kemi Apara. Rebeckah graduated with a degree in Fashion Textiles at the London College of Fashion in 2007 and specialised in screen printed textiles. After graduating she taught herself how to hand sew using embroidery and embellishments.
She started Embellished Talk to create a place to explore and continue to learn about textiles through the professional and personal stories of interesting people, artists and designers.
As well as personally interviewing designers on the Embellished Talk blog Rebeckah runs creative workshops where people can learn how to embroider and embellish.
