Lara Sparks graduated in 1990 from Loughborough College of Art and Design. She has designed embroidery for a variety of textile industries, including fashion, bridal, menswear and childrenswear. During this time, Lara’s work won The Best Bridal Embroidery award for 5 years running. Lara has also appeared on tv, showing some of her work and demonstrating her extraordinary embroidery. From 2000, as a departure from bridal, Lara changed her focus to fashion embroidery and textile design. A wide range of these designs were bought and developed by high street names, including Monsoon and Top Shop. Her current collection of hand machine-embroidered products shows Lara exploring the things she loves to design and make - soft furnishings that are little works of art - quirky, beautiful and fun. The designs are inspired by things English, afternoon tea poured from patterned teapots, served with cakes on lace tablecloths, meadow flowers and all that is beautiful in our countryside.
