INTERVIEW : Sylvie Deschamps

Post by koimaster » June 23rd 2020, 1:44pm

The name of Sylvie Deschamp may not be familiar to you, but you may nonetheless have seen photos of her work with Piaget, with whom she started collaborating in 2012.

An embroiderer of note in her native France, she harks from the region of Charente-Maritime, from whence she received a diploma in Gold and Fantasy Embroidery before moving to Lyon and eventually, national recognition as one of France’s top embroiderers, working in a myriad of forms including haute couture.

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to meet Ms Deschamps and with the aid of an interpreter, asked her about her work and challenges involved in creating this small masterpiece – a Yves Piaget rose decoration for a watch dial.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
