Designklub Yehrin Tong 20 Amazing Watercolor Masterpieces This is the first of its kind post on Designzzz.

Georgia Dehn meets the unsung heroes of the ateliers. BY Georgia Dehn. Emily Barrell, the only Englishwoman to work at Lesage Photo: Noemie Goudal Sandrine Laudren works on chiffon flowers and fur trims at Lemarié Photo: Noemie Goudal Six seamstresses wearing white lab coats are hunched over a wooden frame at the House of Lesage, the oldest embroidery atelier in Paris, feverishly stitching hundreds of tiny cut-glass beads, faceted silver sequins and pearls on to a stretch of snow-white sheepskin.
