It seems the longer I work in this business, the less I’m surprised. However, when I am surprised, I know I’m onto a good thing – a thing worth sharing.
A few years ago I had the great pleasure of meeting a very talented illustrator on Twitter. I was taken with her way of translating fashion through illustration and her incredible ability in getting noticed in a very loud world. Fashion illustrators are a dime a dozen and this is no easy place to stick out from the crowd. But Niki Groom (Miss Magpie Fashion Spy) is standout fabulous. And she just upped the anty. Niki has put all her social illustrations to work in a beautiful scarf, which she sent to me last week, as it seems I was a bit of a contributor to said scarf. Illustrator Niki Groom took all her instagram illustrations from fashion week pictures of old and brought them together in an accessory that I feel is almost too precious to wear. In fact, I’m already thinking about how I can frame this beautiful piece. So what was my contribution? Well, Niki used my love affair with Christopher Kane and made my obsession last forever. Check this out... fabulous!
Thank you, Niki, for being a daily inspiration.
