Saint Giles Gothic Revival Vestments

The Studio recently completed this set of Festal vestments which forms part of a benefactor's donation to the Church of Saint Thomas of Canterbury, Lewisham (Archdiocese of Sydney).  This historic church is undergoing a comprehensive restoration and refurbishment.

These attractive vestments were made from a lovely silk damask of a very muted shade - platinum - and were lined in a  red-coloured taffeta. The chasuble is in the Studio's Saint Giles style, being a contemporary refinement of the Gothic Revival style.

The simple ornament is formed from one of the braids designed by the Studio, in colours of gold upon red.  The braid is directly based on work of AWN Pugin.
