The Velvet Years 1986-1990





“Velvet is the most beautiful fabric to design for” From Sue Clowes Bio

It has a magical trick of bouncing some light off of its surface then hiding additional luminosity within the patterns. I designed velvet collections exclusively for the Girmes’s Niedieck Brand in Germany, then the world highest quality velvet producers established in 1879. They also created at that time the upholstery for Mercedes Benz cars. You’ll never find velvet quality like it anymore.
