farrow & ball gown

farrow & ball gown


i‘ve had a  fab few days, designing & making this frock, using some beautiful farrow & ball wall paper samples.

thanks to debbie peers who owns the  lovely millan interiors shop and design service in parbold, lancashire for giving me this dream job.  the farrow & ball gown was commissioned for a new window dressing display;  i couldn’t resist attempting matching bag and shoes just to complete the picture!

it’s wierd how two completely seperate projects come along from entirely different sources yet are linked. following on the heels of the window dressing project i have been lucky enough – again -  to be involved in a course of workshops being run over the summer at the whitworth art gallery.  the interior design course has been inspired by the current exhibition – ‘ the walls are talking’ . four of my lovely fellow tenants are running consecutive weeks of skills workshops designed to explore various techniques & ideas with a group of keen and ambitious crafters.  we’re all looking forward to it, i’ll report back – hopefully with some images of our creations.

a big thank you to ed watts for involving mc&dc tenants in this project.
