I got to see embroidery, sequin and general embellishment extraordinaire Richard Sorger's work on Friday in person when I was invited to be a part of the Vauxhall Fashion Scout panel, selecting the peeps that will make up a chunk of the off-schedule for London Fashion Week.  Without saying whether or not Sorger will have a part to play in the schedule, I'm merely posting about his A/W 09 collection which once again is heavy with all the good things in life… sequins, holographic card, beading, embroidery and always in the right places as opposed to being patched on in random places.

This jacket was particularly eye-catching with its scrunched up crepe de chine and raffia detailing…

There's that ubiquitous pailette again but backed up with satin ribbon coiling on the skirt…

I loved this long leather coat/dress and yes, that's right, I did just say I liked a 'long leather coat'…

I also completely forgot that Richard Sorger did some fantastic work for Meadham Kirchoff's A/W 09 collection; the embroidery on the trousers, dresses, jackets and shoes.  I love how the gold embroidery looks like it's sort of exploded into a mass of gold thread on the dress…
