Veronica Rowlands is a London based designer whose passion lies in Fashion Illustration and Surface Pattern Design.
One source of inspiration for her work comes frequent visits to museums such as the Museum of Childhood and Pollock’s Toy Museum where she has made many drawings of vintage dolls or toys. She has given them a contemporary twist through experimenting with a range of exciting and flamboyant colours, adorning them with edgy current trends, in order to preserve and set free the inner child!
Rowlands has more recently been making visits to Brick Lane and surrounding areas to explore the imagery and architecture which has inspired the development of the ‘London Fashion Dolls’ collection.
The architectural styles portrayed in the collection provide interesting juxtapositions between modern builds and classic buildings which highlight the temporal contrasts of the East London cityscape – old charm, new dynamism as well as the Avant Garde milieu of Brick Lane which is a 10 minute walk from beating heart of the financial district – a sprawling, architecturally diverse yet cohesive urban hub.
The Fashion Dolls display a cutting edge mix of vintage and with contemporary, cutting edge attire to show the strong styles and changes within this area. – London Borough of Tower Hamlets
