#TOAFtakeover *** I'm thrilled to be sharing with you some images of my work today. I hope you'll enjoy them. I made my first dress out of map after reading an article about a Londoner who was sentenced to prison. They mentioned just a the end that he had a little girl so I decided to make her dress. I folded a London map and I put the prison on the left side of the bodice where the heart is. The dress was called Wormwood Scrubs. @theotherartfair @elisabethlecourt #TakeoverTuesday #london #londonmap #paperdress
#TOAFtakeover #TakeoverTuesday @elisabethlecourt **** this is my mood board. I've always love fashion, I love the elegance, the wit, the simplicity and the imagination, it takes me to a place of dreams. I love fabrics, colors and textures. I love the thought behind it and the fun! #fashion #clothes photo
#TOAFtakeover #TakeoverTuesday I made my first kimono's commission for a friend of a friend who's son Elliot (love that name) was born in Tokyo, lived in New York before moving to London. I mixed the 3 maps and incorporated some tiny details such as buttons made out of French maps from his parents's heritage. The kimono here is made with an Everest and Himalayen map. #heritage #everest #kimono #maps @elisabethlecourt
