Inspiration

Over the years, so many things have inspired me. In particular, the harmonious colour palette of Luibov Popova, Russian artist and fabric designer, 1889-1924. Elsa Schiaparelli, for the sheer volume of work and the skill with which she executed it. Rosalind Russell in "His Girl Friday", 1940, for her quirky panache and Marlene Deitrich, for having the audacity to wear beautifully tailored men's suits combined with handmade bags and shoes from Italian artisan Massaro, a popular look now, but she wore it in 1932, long before Yves Saint Laurent created his "Le Smoking" range!

I am finding my influences become more oblique as the time passes by and have made patterns inspired by bakelite radios, art deco cinemas and a host of other things, so I will try to keep this page a bit more current to let you see what is making me tick, daily meanderings are always on Facebook though, join me on
