Behind the scenes with the girls from the UK at the Fashion Sans Frontiers event.
We also went behind the scenes at the Fashion Sans Frontiers show to catch up with some of the artists.
Helen guided us through her daywear complete with matching stockings!. She also showed us her lovely black and white outfit with matching coil pot and her coil rainbow dress complete with collar. Helen used in excess of 150 needles in making this coil outfit . Valerie doesn’t think she’ll even complain again when she has to replace one!!
If you fancy giving this technique a try, you can watch her demonstration in the workshop section (we have reloaded it for you).
Annette has outfits that double up as wall hangings – no I don’t mean on a hanger. Her outfits unbutton and become works of art. She shares with us how she is influenced by Mondrian and also by the unique scent of opening a new pattern.
Angela walks us through her outfits which are an eclectic mix. From the sensible denim jacket made from recycled jeans through the bit of bling as an accessory. She also uses black garden suppressant fabric and refuse sacks. Truly wearable art from an unusual source and amazingly glamorous. To find out more about Angela you need go no further than enjoy the interview with her on the site.
Valerie caught up with Ferret on her way to the dressing room when she transformed herself initially with her phoenix rising leather cape. She caught up with her again in her Victorian inspired evening ensemble with Tet, her knight in shining armour. Ferret can be found at http://www.ferfab.co.uk/ where you can find out more about her amazing quilting skills.
Jennie was so busy changing in and out of her long boots and finding her whips, that Valerie only managed to catch up with her in her glam hat when a glass of wine was long overdue. You can see more of her wedding outfit which closed the show. You can learn more about Jennie by watching the interview here on the site.
