Haute Couture Illustrated Note Cards

Christian Lacroix Stationery

Time to send those post-Christmas thank you notes.

A stylish present deserves a suitably stylish thank you card in return. Decorated with beautiful inky illustrations by Christian Lacroix and individually cut, I wouldn’t mind receiving the whole set as a gift myself. Emails may be more efficient and environmentally friendly but I still stand firm- I don’t think you can beat a hand written note. Available at www.liberty.co.uk.

I’m reading…. David Downton Masters of Fashion Illustration

David Downton

Reading is not my strong point, I rarely finish a book- I renewed my last library book four times before I finally gave up, admitted defeat and bought the audio version. I’m not the fastest reader, which is pretty frustrating when the plot thickens and I go into ‘skimming mode’ (which I’m actually rather good at) extracting only the vital facts. It’s a natural assumption, I write so I must be a bookworm too. I do love reading magazines, newspapers and blogs- the short bursts of information and witty articles suit me fine. Sunday wouldn’t be Sunday without me demolishing The Times into bite-sized sections, much to the annoyance of anyone who reads the paper after me.

David Downton Masters of Fashion Illustration

In complete contradiction I always put a book on my Christmas list. Some things just work better in real form. Photographs and illustrations come to life on paper, need time to be absorbed, pawed over and revisited for inspiration. David Downton Masters of Fashion Illustration was last years ask- a stroll through the evolution of fashion illustration. The perfect guide by one of my all time favourite artists. I’d love to know if there are any books you can’t part with?

Jessica Durrant for Fashion Follows Her

JD

I have some great news to share with you…….Jessica Durrant (my favourite illustrator) has agreed to help me re-design Fashion Follows Her!

Jess

Jessica specializes in pen and watercolour illustrations that are so beautiful and dreamy it’s impossible not to fall in love. When I decided to start working on re-designing the blog I knew just the girl to help me out. Over the next few weeks please bear with me as Fashion Follows Her evolves, there are exciting times ahead…….
