Rebeckah Kemi Apara is a textiles designer and founder of Embellished Talk, a platform to explore textiles through digital content and creative workshops. She’s collaborated and embroidered t-shirts for GURLS TALK the platform founded by fashion model Adwoa Aboah. Rebeckah specialises in embroidery and embellishments and runs hands on workshops where attendees can learn the basics of decorating different items from tote bags to denim. Previous workshops have taken place in WAH Nails, Boxpark Shoreditch, Palm Vaults and Ace Hotel. During The London Fashion Week Festival Rebeckah will give you taster into learning how to sew on cotton t-shirts or bags using embellishments (beads and sequins). All levels are welcome so don’t worry if you’ve never sewn before. Each attendee will also receive a small goody bag of sewing treats.
The hour long sessions will run throughout the day on Saturday 24 February and are free to attend on a first come first served basis. Head to the ‘Embellishment Talk’ area when you arrive at the event to reserve your space.
