Embroidery has come a long way from being just a mere hobby to an exquisite work of art. Today, there are plenty of modern textile artists featuring their own distinctive form of embroidery. But this is probably the first time you’ve heard about 3D hair embroidery. Bernita Broderie is pushing this contemporary art of embroidery which involves the clever use of threads to resemble gorgeous hair.
The brilliant French embroidery artist intricately stitches colored yarns into cotton fabric to render realistic, flowing hair. Most of her works emphasize different hairstyles adorning the silhouettes of female figures. Her masterpieces also include textile strands for the garment and flower accessories for the hair. But the center of attention is certainly the alluring hairstyles that jump off the hoop.
Broderie’s 3D hair embroidery presents various hairstyles ranging from flowing waves to stylish updos and chic braids. They are fascinating to look at but it actually requires skills, patience, and time to complete a piece. Broderie reveals her passion in artistic processes since she was a kid. She has been into embroidery for quite some time but she started mastering 3D hair embroidery just over a year ago. Now, she has totally fallen in love with the craft and her work collections are clear manifestations of that. “I deeply enjoy working with fabrics, needle and threads,” she says. “I can’t sleep at nights without creating something new.”
