Charlotte olympia Burgh Island

 To celebrate her birthday Charlotte asked us to design and produce her birthday weekend on Burgh Island at the Art deco Burgh Island hotel, we created bespoke elements you see below,, beautiful sunny trip back to the 1930 for the weekend.

Vintage mirrors for the women and vintage cigarette cases for the men were used as placements

Hand illustrated table cloths adorned the tables for the friday night fish and chip dinner and shells filled with roses as floral displays

Art deco lady lamps and a floral runner of peonies

Osklen, Haute couture Spring summer 2015 set design

We were asked by Osklen to design a set for there spring summer 2014 haute couture collection in Paris. The location was to be the Brazilian embassy. With a beach-themed collection inspired by the French Riviera in the 1950s. A touch of Ipanema Beach, found in the bikinis decorated in palm trees,  and stripes, was combined into this Europe-meets- Brazil collection.We created a 1950s inspired changing cabana adorned with black and white stripes... I combined a classic but graphic style of illustration to reflect our cabana design and in keeping with the brand logo, illustrated 7ft palm trees and parasols....

a few little images on the making in progress
