If you have not been privileged enough to stumble across Melbourne based and designed fashion label, Khòlò, then let us be the ones to introduce you…. you can thank us later…
Since their inception in 2016, Khòlò has been well known for its over the top, haute couture embroidery details - whether it be a cuff or a shoulder or collar, your outfit has never quite seen this much sequinned glory. Hand beaded, never generic and always inspiring, this is the first time ever Khòlò is bringing their unique beading techniques to Australia.
The Island Girl collection by Khòlò details the memory of a childhood spent in Fiji - we have chosen the most beautiful of tropical florals for this workshop series.
You will be privy to learning this special embroidery technique, used throughout Khòlò’s collections, and thought to have originated from India. This particular ancient technique is referred to as Ari work, and there are traces of it as stemming back as early as the 16th Century. It has traveled from Barabanki in Uttar Pradesh, to Kutch in Gujarat and then later in the 18th Century, it was exported across the Middle East and eventually arrived in Europe.
If you are an embroidery fanatic or just want to learn a unique skill, come along to this once in a life time workshop!
The Windsor Workshop is located on level 1 of 115 Chapel Street, Windsor. Windsor train station is a 4 minute walk, or jump off at Duke Street stop on Tram 78. All day parking is available behind Paint Spot, Windsor (opposite the station) for around $7/day.

It is likely you will be photographed at the workshop, so please let us know if you do not want to be published.
