Eley Kishimoto vs Naomi Charles and the windowdresser @ the corner shop, paddington

its so nice when a random set of inspired pieces come together so happily..I think its the moment a VM hopes for...

The "Girl in Bathers' artwork by Naomi Charles and Eley Kishimoto SS08 collection seemed as though they had been created by the same hand so i wanted to work them into a display together...

I made the concertina paper chains (probably inspired by the giant crane in the view from my bedroom window and the ideas of old school crafty paper art I have been seeing around the arty website traps)

I thought they would link the elements within the display with joy and playfulness.. feelings evoked in both the artwork and the fashion..

At the end of winter its a nice hit of colour and carnival energy:)

contemporary art ahoy!

I highly recommend going to the V&A museum and to the Royal Academy as you may find some wonderful contemporary art nestled in amongst all that history..
these images are taken whilst i was looking at the RA 2008 school show and the garden installation at the V&A.

Italy in a nutshell

Italy is always so inspirational just because it is the way it is. I also had a moment where i finally returned to the city that made me a windowdresser and re found the creative road i have felt has been a little to the left lately.. it was an amazing week and i have a few of my favourite moments for you..
here are 3 cities summed up..
faenza - bicycles and beautiful banality
florence - the beautiful city
rome - the details in between.

harvey nichols june windows

Although i wasn't much of a fan of the main installation using paint (which had dried in the weeks the display was in ) these windows are the absolute best! what a great idea of internals and externals and an interesting way of using the glass and the window sizes..
