THE TECHNIQUE OF
SOUTACHE EMBROIDERY

          

          Soutache is narrow flat decorative braid, a type of galloon, used in the trimming of drapery or clothing.

          Often woven of metallic bullion thread, silk, or a blend of silk and wool, Mihca Cho utilized ribbon that had been vertically sewn onto black sheer tulle to give a raised effect.


   
KATE SOMERS
THE MUSE
   
          
   
"Dolce far Niente"

A favorite expession of Ms. Somers expressing the sweetness of idleness.

Far from idle however,
Ms. Somers expemplifies the Mihca Cho woman gracing venerated catwalks of Alexander McQueen, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Louis Vuitton while simultaneously pursuing studies in literary theory and political sciences.

A true inspiration and beauty.
