R J Gibson is about uniting my lifelong passion for exquisite embroidery with couture sensibilities, without sacrificing my commitment to sustainability. From the moment I began embroidering samplers as a child in Scotland, through to studying fashion design and honing my skills in luxury textiles and couture with the likes of Giles Deacon and Jasper Conran in London, I have always been fascinated by the transformative properties of embroidery. I love how the simple elements of needle, thread and patience can – in the right hands – make a plain surface into a feast for the senses, creating something beautiful to behold and thrilling to touch.
