Russian embroidery artist Krista Decor hand stitches her designs onto tulle—a fine net-like fabric with a shimmering, translucent quality that makes her designs look as though they are floating in mid-air.
Krista first learned to make “real haute couture embroidery” using tulle when she collaborated with designers during an internship at V. Yudashkin—a fashion-house in Russia. Since then, the artist has been creating exquisite, nature-inspired embroidery designs, with flowers, leaves, and birds as her primary motifs. Krista mostly uses colorful cotton and wool embroidery threads of various thicknesses and textures; however, she also embellishes her designs using silk ribbon, beads, pearls, and natural stones, which add a touch of dazzling luxury to each piece.
Krista often updates her Instagram page with new designs, as well as progress shots and videos.
