Our Story

 

You’ve been on the search for that something special,

so glad you have found us! 

I’m Payal, I am passionate about creating beautiful designs and helping people find a creative therapeutic outlet through the art of embellishment design by teaching you all the skills you need in our embellishment masterclasses.

We’ve been creating unique designs, keeping up with trends and continually reviewing embellishment techniques to bring you innovative designs with exceptional craftsmanship.

My unique background in couture bridal embroidery, HR and environmental management has led me to create Embellished London, our design philosophy focuses on style, quality craftsmanship and sustainability.

In 2004 I was frustrated that I couldn’t find aesthetically appealing outfits with a wow factor and decided to travel throughout India where I started my design journey and learned the traditional art of hand embroidery. Since then, I have persevered and continued perfecting my craft, studied at the London College of Fashion and continued to create even more unique and creative designs by incorporating Swarovski and Preciosa crystals, rare sequins and beads to bring you the best of the best. We hope that our designs make it easy for you to find accessories that make a statement, bring out your inner sparkle and allow you to shop consciously knowing that our designs are made sustainably and ethically in London.
