TEXTILES & FABRICS

We have found such inspiration from theses gorgeous 19th century “Dress Shoe” illustrations of T. Watson Grieg and the vintage chapeaux catalogues found at Rijks Museum. So we did a little digital designing & styling ourselves with this story and added a few of our own little touches to this collection of pretty shoes. Something to always remember when styling, blending gracious elements together always works!

TEXTILES & FABRICS

Today, many of these museums are sharing their fabulous archives and making them available through their smart interactive websites. Rijks Museum in Amsterdam, (European museum of the year - 2015), launched “Rijks Studio” in late 2012, sharing with everyone online over 200’000 artworks from their massive collection...and all presented in pin-sharp high-res imagery for you to zoom in on, to touch, to ‘like’ and to use in your own creations. Once you set up your own account with Rijks, the entire online collection of images are available to you. It’s endless what you can create with RijksStudio. For those of you looking for inspiration for your work, look no further than through the vast library of extraordinary items: clip & crop into the finest of details, just as we have done here...

TEXTILES & FABRICS

Hand painted chintzes from India first appeared in Europe in the early 1600’s. Their brilliantly coloured motifs of exotic flowers and foliage, animals and birds, often adorned a Tree of Life. Four hundred years later, these designs are still highly sort after today and continue to ignite the imaginations of decorators, textile designers, printers and embroiderers. Rijks Museum’s collection of 18th century Indian interior and dress chintzes are extraordinary examples of beautiful designs that stand the test of time.

CELEBRATING WATER

As the mist moves in across the Southern Highlands countryside at this time of the year, when the days are very hot and the afternoons are cool. The kangaroos, cows and other animals go about feeding as usual.  

It is for them just another day, but for us, like a master’s painting, it is a thing of beauty!

CELEBRATING WATER

Cooking with natural curiosities from the sea...I asked Sonali Ghosh, Styling magazine food editor to create something special for me using water, ice and creatures from the sea. So she got her big gun pots and pans out and created a wonderful selection of delicious and very colourful dishes. We added a little extra to the dish by sprinkling on the side some more of the extraordinary vintage illustrations of Ernst Haeckel.

CELEBRATING WATER

As a popular website stated recently, “STYLING is in the spotlight right now. Once, it was a somewhat a mysterious profession. Stylists were invisible people who made pictures look good, but who never really got much time in the spotlight themselves. These days, styling is a sought after gig”. 

Well, one of those (invisible) stylists, working behind the camera with over 30+ years creating images is French stylist Fifi O’Neill. Recently she celebrated a very special birthday, her 70th, a real milestone, and she is just about to release another book. I believe creativity never stops, no matter what age you are and Fifi is testimony of that! Please celebrate with us the remarkable work of this beautiful, talented and very kind lady.

She is a true legend in the Styling world.

CELEBRATING WATER

When a place attracts this much attention from film directors, artists, stylists, actors and the creative industry as a whole, we knew we needed to have a closer look.  Well, we agree, there really is something special happening at James Perkins’ place, Aynhoe Park! Actually, wonderful  things happen there every day. It has become the Mecca of   weddings, parties & fantastic creative fashion & film shoots. It is a stylists dream house! So, we asked Thomas Farquhar to drop by whilst he was in Oxfordshire recently to investigate, and his response was...it’s absolutely fffffffabulous!

CELEBRATING WATER

“Art is a language of emotion arising from personal experience” says portrait photographer Adrian Viletta, who recently travelled to Cuba with his creative team to photograph for the fashion House, ‘Atelier’, Puerto Rico. Adrian’s images captures model, Teresita Vincente in a place lost in time, still untouched with amazing architectural and beautiful old crumbling mansions built when Cuba had tremendous wealth in the 1950’s. Adrian’s concept was to contrast the faded and crumbled beauty of the surroundings with this young beautiful woman, almost as if a ghost from the old days of Havana had returned to the city as it is now.  It’s magical, mystical, beautiful and exotic...Cuba is a place of extremes.
