Although we are still coping with grey skies, somewhere over the 🌈, the skies are Forget-Me-Not blue and I hope that the dreams we dare to dream, really do come true.
To quote one of my favourite artists/designers;
“Blue is the only colour which maintains its own character in all its tones it will always stay blue; whereas yellow is blackened in its shades, and fades away when lightened; red when darkened becomes brown, and diluted with white is no longer red, but another colour – pink.”
Raoul Dufy 3 June 1877 – 23 March 1953) was a French Fauvist painter, brother of Jean Dufy. He developed a colourful, decorative style that became fashionable for designs of ceramics and textiles, a draftsman, printmaker, book illustrator, scenic designer, a designer of furniture, and a planner of public spaces.
I’ve had a lot of blue on my mind as I'm finishing my Autumn-Winter 2021/2022 Collection which will be hanging in the showroom in London, waiting for London Fashion Week buyers. I've decided on a very dark blue and really hope they'll be joining the Colour Pop collection already hanging there, and I'm dreaming of both being added to the current modal and silk online capsule wardrobe collections!
In the meantime, I’ve been printing with blues to add to my collection of lampshades for a few blue bottles (mainly Gin) I’ve been eyeing up.
Like Georgia, also enjoy using colours and shapes.
When screen printing I often overlap diverse colours and shapes, to give my prints their unique and vibrant quality, as lampshades, they add a bit of quirky art to a room.
Lighting up the world, one lampshade at a time.
