I’ve finished my ‘London Fashion Doll’ collection and yesterday spent the day getting prints made, mounted and framed.
They are now waiting at ‘The Idea Store’ (Canary Wharf) and shall be going up in the next few days.
I have created this collection of Fashion Illustrations which have been inspired from London (mainly East) with detailing from imported goods brought into Docklands and iconic buildings such as The Gherkin and O2 Arena, translating the architecture into surreal proportions and pattern.
Dolls are always my main muse, so it is integral to incorporate them into every theme creating an eclectic fusion of displaced imagery and objects.
London has great deal of iconic events happening in 2012; from the Queen’s Jubilee to the Olympics and Paralympics, so I’ve adorned the Fashion Dolls in cutting edge vintage and contemporary garments; from crinolines to jump suits.
Each piece has been drawn in black ink to highlight the intricate detailing and then one area has been given colour – red, white and blue for the Union Jack and influences from British, vintage fabrics.
-All prints are limited Edition – with only 50 of each being produced: £45 (unframed)signed, numbered and I can provide certificates of authenticity if required.
