I had a fantastic night at the opening of the 1st Scottish Anthropologie Store in Edinburgh on George Street.
What an amazing store! There’s so many great things about it, it’s boutique-like on a large scale, with lovely displays, lots of lovely textures, and amazing clothes and home ware.
I can’t believe how they have used my artwork form the hoarding, amazing blocky feature near the stairs – much bigger and better than I could of imagined. Some of my pattern used within the artwork spanning over 2 floors.
It was funny as lots of people recognised me from the video of me creating the hoarding artwork. Concept & Graft were there too.
It was great to see my hand printed scarves within the store and also being worn!
Cocktails, delicious hor d’oeuvres and oysters – top night!
Here is a sneak preview of the scarves I did for Anthropologie Edinburgh. I’m looking forward to going to private opening tonight – cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, exhibition, auction and I can only imagine a fabulous range of products displayed in their boutique style. Looking forward to seeing my scarves within their store.
I was asked to do a collection of scarves for the opening after creating the giant temporary storefront artwork, a piece of this will be in-store too. The scarf design combines my dapple print with some flying or standing pheasants. Hand printed with a merging of colours to create the blended effect and overprints. These scarves are only available in-store.
I’ve been mixing delicious colour for my scarf samples for Anthropologie. I’m creating an exclusive range of silk scarves for their 1st Scottish store, opening on George Street in Edinburgh on the 15th June 2011. I will be hand printing these in my studio in Dundee and finishing them myself. I will reveal the scarves on my blog when they are available to buy in the Edinburgh store. Looking forward to seeing my work in their store.
A great opportunity to win one of my scarves by posting a comment below. What you have to do is to describe my new work using 3 descriptive words. Have a go, win a scarf for yourself or give it to someone you like!
The competition closes on Sunday 22nd at midnight! I will select a winner – Goodluck!
