Kate Spade x Magnolia Bakery 3D Papercut Patisserie

I’m super excited to share this personal project with you all! Kate Spade and Magnolia Bakery have collaborated to create a limited-edition collection of totes, bags, and clutches inspired by the iconic Manhattan cake shop. KS handbags and cupcakes… This was only ever going to be a recipe for amazingness! I’ve been meaning to add some more three-dimensional work to my portfolio… so here it is! I’ve called the little paper patisserie ‘Cake Spade’ (get it?!) Can you spot the scrummy cross-body cupcake bag in the window?!

Illustrated London Fashion Week

A couple of weeks ago fashion week hit London, and as soon as I stumbled across shoe designer Sophia Webster‘s Spring/Summer 2014 collection ‘Supa Dupa Fly’, I instantly fell in love. The collection was showcased in a cute and colourful garden themed wonderland. The collection appears to take inspiration from some of natures most colourful insects and blooms. With stripes, lady bird spots and cut-out butterfly designs adorning pastel and patent footwear.

As a tribute to this fun and enchanting collection, I’ve created this illustration using cut and assembled paper.  A pair of these beauties are definitly on my summer wardrobe wishlist!

Fashion Tuesday

Whenever I’m getting creative I always either sit down with a pen or with a scalpel… I’m definitely not a naturally inclined medium-mixer! I adore drawing by cutting paper and simply sketching with a pen both equally, so I went wild and combined the two. I was half watching the ‘Liberty of London’ programme on Channel 4 last night whilst sketching, which I think is what inspired the major fashion theme!… (as well as a subconscious wish that I find something resembling the below in my stocking this year) 🙂converse
