Glorious Colour




I'm on a bit of an all out colour binge at the moment. Maybe it's the sunshine or maybe it's just the increasing amount of beige I see every day but I really feel the need to stack beads, colours, textures and go for it full whack. This ensemble in constructed from various items from my mum's studio. The jacket is hand embroidered by her and lined with a gorgeous floral fabric she got in Istanbul. The pom pom bracelets have recently been added to our Etsy shop, they come in a whole variety of colours and are so jolly to wear, they brighten my mood instantly. I've always been a big fan of colour, I find it very hard to imagine not getting up and putting on something bright. One of my all time heroes is Kaffe Fassett (a fellow colour enthusiast). I saw his exhibition Life in Colour at the FTM last year and it was so beautiful. I met him too which was quite the dream, I left feeling like I'd visited another world! I recently found that his programme Glorious Colour is available to watch on 4oD, it's so inspiring; I definitely recommend it.  I'm just plotting now how I can get to his latest exhibition at The American Museum in Bath! 

I've had a very inspiring week, I've had so many ideas for new pictures and projects so I'm sure you'll all be seeing some of them soon! 

I hope you are all well and thank you so much for all the lovely birthday wishes on my last post, they really made me smile.

  6. Fantastically gorgeous. Explosions of colour - too bad you don't leak all over those beigers. I at least hope they also feast in the delights of your candied self passing by.

  7. Well Hello!! Thanks for commenting on my little blog. You are a vision of loveliness in all that fabulous colour. The bangles with pompoms are divine, and so is the embroidered jacket. Must now go check your shop out.

  8. Maybe it's because Blue & Orange are complementary colours or because the Dress & Jacket just look so unique & fabulous together, but I like them both!!!

  9. I remember being enthralled by Kaffe Fassett way back when. You don't seem to see him about so much any more. What do you think of Tricia Guild? She's another one with amazing colour sense. Your mother is amazingly talented. I love her work and you are the perfect model for it. I love these photos so much, they are so inspiring. What a team! Xxx

  12. I loved Kaffe Fassett's designs. I'm sure I still see his embroidery kits advertised in magazines I've read in the doctor's. You look wonderful, my weekly colour fix! x
