Fabric manipulations are part of Cecilie´s silhouettes, smock being one of her all time favourites. The smock is an embroidery technique, that consists in gathering fabric following a pattern, and stitch it in place with an elastic thread. Beyond its appealing tri dimensional look, its richness and its playfulness, the smock technique is an ideal way to shine a new light on a fabric, and change its appearance. Here, a silk base organza has been smocked following a square shapes pattern, for a symmetrical and lush aspect.
