An 'Other Worldly' still life project with WILMA. These pictures were designed to evoke the familiarity we have in our journey's, discoveries, dreams and fears.
Theatre de la Mode
London Fashion Week Pop-Up Exhibition
In collaboration with menswear brand Theatre de la Mode (TdLM)
Working entirely by hand, with a small team of assistants and using only paper and cardboard we set out to create three intricate ‘mega structure’ sculptures that captured the spirit of their best selling jackets.
The sculptures were exhibited alongside the jackets in a pop-up exhibition during London Fashion week.
I teamed up with WILMA studio to produce a series of exciting still life sets for Sunglasses brand Retro Super Future, playing on the beautiful colours and textures of their hand crafted frames.
All elemets of this shoot were made with paper and card.
This project commissined by Fedrigoni was in celebration of thier new Savile Row collection of papers and was designed to sit alongside thier new sample look books and show what can be done with them, how far paper can be taken sculpturally, the quality you can achieve using thier papers.
Showing off thier new textured and pin striped range, I was asked to make a to scale replica of a tailored suit using only thier new collection of papers.
Templates had to be cut, stitch lines and pocket details created, shirt, tie and collars all had to be as accurate as a genuine tailored suit.
The mannequin torso and stand also had to be made from paper in order to display the final sculpture at thier press event.
Commissioned by Indigofera PR for Master Crafts Union (MCU) Japan.
This project was unique in that I had to speed train myself to think and work like a fashion designer would. Sampling, testing, pattern cutting, fixing and re-fixing...and although they were not designed to be worn, only displayed, they could have been.
The brand wanted to show off thier new fabric technology by commissioning some sculptures made from thier signature material, traditional Japanese Washi paper.
Along with the Jean sculptures I made bespoke Origami Humming bird invites which were, like the Jeans, tested and part dyed in the signature indigo jean blue.
The brief here was to design and construct an engaging and colourful space for Superdrug's 50th anniversary. This incliuded Giant cosmetic product bottles, signage and giant welcome letters to fill the cavenous event space, which included dressing a runway for LCF's best fashion design telents. All props and signage were constructed entirely from paper and cardboard.
Rhonda and Lulu at Darkroom wanted a Christmas window done for the Winter of 2013, so I created a 3 dimensional geometric icy landscape using white and pearlescent card to give them something to display thier products on in a unique way. The window was both engaing to the passing customer yet still allowed the quality and vibrance of the products to shine through.
Accessory designer Una Burke needed a new set of punchy and conceptual campaign images to front her latest collection.
This series of images were designed to inject that creative and conceptual feel using brand colours, shapes and clean lines to accentuate the qualities running through the collection.
