giant paper fleurs.

we had a couple of fun days making giant flowers complete with stems and leaves for our two London Ghost stores on kings road and in westfield ( : i also went to the other side of the scale and made a really small flower from crepe paper for my mum’s birthday ( : a new love. i think they look really effective and brighten up the stores.

Artist Textiles: Picasso to Warhol

Any textile or art lovers this is a must! Even if you wouldn’t know that the prints throughout the exhibition are by key artists; the likes of Picasso, Warhol, Piper, Miro, Nicholson………. it is truly inspiring to see the beautiful prints for fashion and homeware. The exhibition is also well ___ in a way that is easy to understand and see the progression from Cubism and Surrealism to Pop Art. My favourite pieces were:

Andy Warhol – Buttons (4th from bottom)

Saul Steinberg – Paddington Station (3rd from bottom)

John Rombola – Parade (bottom)

really inspirational trip to the design museum for the long awaited paul smith exhibition. although quite small it was an amazing insight into how paul started out in such a small (3m x 3m!) shop. now his work is very recognisable all over the world. being involved in the shirt world myself with Hawes and Curtis it was interesting to see just how different a design office can be! much worth the visit.
