Uh Oh Its Nearly Christmas!

October 16, 2009

There’s been so much to do after the IJL trade show {see my previous post, ‘Showdown’ for the nitty gritty} that again, to my great chagrin, I’ve been playing my usual game of catch up. Oh to be one of those super organised people who were probably girl guides, boy scouts or something in their youth and have everything ready three months before absolutely neccessary; whether it be trade shows, Christmas Shopping, birthdays, or whatever. I’m afraid I have never been ~ and clearly by now, never will be one of those peculiarly talented people!  I have a theory that I’m privately a bit of an adrenalin junkie {after all, I must like to live dangerously as I ride a motorbike and work with sharp implements, although admittedly not simultaneously}, and actually enjoy the pressure of problem solving within a very short space of time. True to form, I do seem to work very well under pressure…



I have  just uploaded the new Autumn- Winter 2009/10 Objet Trouvé range onto my website. I’ve been fascinated for some time by Art Deco Illustrators such as Georges Barbier, Umberto Brunelleschi and {of course} Erté, so used their sumptuous visuals and inate humour of the foibles of fashionable society {@ you Monsieur Barbier} as my inspiration.


Its a theme I can see myself pursuing for the next couple of seasons as theres alot of life left in it yet ~ I haven’t begun to scratch the surface, and the colours and overall feel of the illustrations lend themselves to a whole host of beautiful colour mixes and palettes. I’m currently finalising the images for the new Trousseau range, which will be uploaded in a week or so.  Of course I’ll post images and links when its done. There’s a distinct vintage pearl theme running through it this season…


Its just hit me, of course,  that its mid October, which means that for all the self employed designers, artists and crafts people out there that uh oh, its nearly Christmas!  That thought, if nothing else should give me the adrenalin fix I need…
