one of the current exhibitions at the design museum... drawing fashion celebrates the some of the most remarkable and unique illustrators since the 1900's...from lepape who illustrated many of the very 1st vogue covers to current artists like francois berthoud... two of my favourites being mats gustafson & aurore de la morinerie.... you will be able to tell why ;]
& aurore de la morinerie..

plain space is a major exhibition presenting the work of 'the father of modern architectural minimalism'.. john pawson.
the full sized installation.. the first of its kind at the design museum... a serene, peaceful space that illuminates grace and simplicity is at the heart of the room that presents pawson's rigorous process of reduction...
i could do with sitting in a room like that right now :-|
open until the 30th jan 2011
an amazing night held at the design museum by the sketchbook magazine team.. filled with live illustration workshops.. exclusive interviews with designers.. christmas card making and finished off nicely with a couple of mince pies and a glass of wine ;]...
talks with fashion designs richard nicoll, bora aksu..(who stated that he preferred a stylist not to work on his shows as they 'tend to throw their weight around'..haha), amy moleyaux (who's pet hate is dry felt tips...) & fred butler accessories designer and prop stylist... explained how important the role of illustration is in the design process... if you need to be a good drawer... or just able to get your idea's across...

or something along those lines...
some of the final edits from the shoot last night... shot in the ten bells church yard at night mariell captured a creepy snowman.. or something that started of like that but turned into my slightly twisted creation haha. although maybe the quickest shoot we have ever done after 24 hours of total stress dealing with model cancelations time and time again because of the snow we finally got there.. we may have froze but i love the end result!
shot at night but without flash... the street light leaves an eerie but soft mood... finished off with amazing masks made by ole elias hove!
photography - mariell amelie
styling - olivia wright
make up, hair & masks - ole elias hove
model - josh @ select models

so .. always forgetting how huge the barbican centre is i wandered around for a good half hour trying to find the stairs... wandered straight into a graduation.. and got lost once more within the crowds of adoring family members... pretty sure i made it into some of their pictures looking very confused and slightly panicked!
finally finding the stairs... without having to ask for directions although i'm sure it would of been a lot quicker.. i made my way up to the 3rd floor, where all was calm. the exhibition room, all tall ceilings white walls and sheer fabric pieces (that were very similar to the blinds hanging in my bedroom!) hung to screen off each part of the wonderful maze and create a soft clean background to showcase the beauty of these japanese fashions..
displaying japanese avant-garde fashion from the 1980's to now, the exhibition houses visionaries such as issey miyake, rei kawakubo and yohji yamamoto as well as works by the next generations including junya watanabe, jun yakahashi, tao kurihara and mint designs, all of whom challenge the established western notions of beauty and fashion and whose radical concepts continue to defy convention... please to excuse my dodgy sneaky snaps below... this exhibition is so so so worth a visit!! see all info below :] x
made entirely of wadding.. i want one!
