A detail showing the fine stiching of a cotton dress by couturier Margaret Howell in the company's workshop factory in Edmonton, North London. England. In close-up, the eye is drawn into the centre of focus where the buttons are held in a criss-cross stich in its four holes. There are pins in this still prototype design as it evolves from an idea on paper to an actual garment. The fine check pattern of its fabric is beautifully sewn together in this fine and intricate dress. Howell is one of Britain's more understated of couture brands alongside more flamboyant personalities. Howell admits to being "inspired by the methods by which something is made .. enjoying the tactile quality of natural fabrics such as tweeds, linen and cotton in a relaxed, natural and lived in look."
