Kick start a collaboration

Dahlings,

Apologies for being away for so long, I have had a lot of projects simmering and am now ready to serve one up!

I have been working with renowned contemporary artist Mikey Georgeson on an amazing “wearable art” peace silk project.

Here we are contemplating, and waiting for a magic moth – watch the video at the top of the kickstarter campaign to see more….

 Take a look at our Kickstarter campaign here

This is all part of my mission to revere the humble silk moth. Our ultimate goal is to create a fabric from a found silk supply chain, this means any silk used would be a natural / wild waste product and not from a captive animal. I’ll be working with a group of incredible hand weavers to hand loom the cloth that will then be made into a couture gown, ready for Mikey to paint.

The modern answer to Dali and Schiaparelli, with a sustainable and social justice message… who shall we get to be our Wallis Simpson?!

I hope you like it and will help us, and the moths, by backing our project on Kickstarter.

Yours in wearable art
