One of the most beautiful things done by the hand of woman.
But one of the most dangerous to use with elegance.
I don't like embroidery on day clothes-unless it is very, very simple.
If used discreetly it is good for cocktail dresses
and in a more elaborate fashion it is wonderful for evening clothes.
For a dinner party a short embroidered dress may be very nice,
but you must only wear embroidery on suitable occasions,
otherwise it is pretentious.
-Christian Dior, from The Little Dictionary of Fashion (HNA Books)
