Friday at the V and A

Me and Thereza Rowe had all sorts of fun at the V and A on Friday night! We screenprinted bags (one designed ny me), took a journey through a tunnel of Yamamoto garments and generally got up to no good!

Thereza left me with her bow (as postive blackmail) so I will come and visit her soon!

Yojhi Yamamoto at the V and A

There is always a good reason to visit the V and A ....but come along tomorrow night when Friday Late: Yohji Yamamoto at Play takes place! It's a celebration of fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto and the exhibition about his iconic work.

There will be workshops, live performances, screenings, DJs and a bar.

I was asked to produce an illustration celebrating one of Yohji Yamamoto's creations....and on Friday at the V and A you will be able to come and screenprint your own bag with it! As well as my design you can also choose between illustrations by Abby Wright, Rosie McGuiness and Mireille Fauchon.
