Best known for her work as a costume designer on HBO’s television series Game Of Thrones, Michele Carragher sets the bar for hand embroidered designs.

Her career within the medium of film started when she collaborated with filmmaker Scott JG Flockhart on short films and music videos. She later went on to assist under costume designers Mike O’Neill and Samantha Horn, who later hired her in 2005 for the Emmy Costume award-winning production of the HBO mini-series Elizabeth 1. She then went on to be the lead costume designer and embroiderer for the set of Game Of Thrones. Michele is now getting back into her artistic roots and is now creating her first collection of embroidery based art called "Seasons" and will be in exhibition in 2016.
