Myself and Jacqueline Ford are setting a brief for the next PAPERSHAKERS night on Friday 28th October. We would like you to submit a Halloween themed image which can be produced as an edition, screen printed, printed, hand drawn – it’s up to you. We are looking to promote and sell 10 people’s work alongside our own on the night. So here’s a good chance to get your work out there into the public domain and to discover other people’s at the same time. Please get in touch for more details.

This is some work I did for a London College of Fashion student, Florie. You can follow her on my twitter, and see her blog. The aim of the work was to create a modern day representation of a female warrior., referencing Alexander McQueen and Balenciaga collections.

This is one of the first things I ever even heard about Alexander McQueen, I hadn’t even seen it and it was legendary…the casual spray painting of a models dress on a revolving catwalk. Creating a piece of art, whilst possibly sticking two fingers up at the fashion industries ridiculous preciousness:

This is better cut (or just as well cut as) Viviennes. Also digging the black and white Coke cans wrapped in cellophane around the models heads:

I’m going to be a dresser for Amanda Wakeley today.

This is a link to her A/W 2007 catwalk show:

Her clothes are elegant, simplistic, but strong at the same time. I like the A/W clothes the best I think.
