Perhaps there is a tendency to regard embroidery as being fine, delicate work -- and, indeed, it is - but these pieces by Jazmin Berakha pack a punch of colour. Based in Buenos Aires, Berakha uses a rainbow of vivid colour to dress her maidens in rich floral shorts, striped shawls, patchwork sweaters, geometrically inclined swimsuits and an array of other exquisitely patterned clothing. Berakha does not overwhelm, however; her maidens usually bundle up in but one distinct article of clothing at a time.
