Carnovsky Print Please


I came across an Italian studio called Carnovsky made up of Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla.
At first I just loved the colours and imagery. The more I read about the work the more I realised how interesting it was. This insulation and work is called RGB and it is very clever.

RGB designs create surfaces that mutate and interact with each other.
Basically the technique is three sets of imagery in primary colours all overlapping and intertwining with each other... resulting in what looks like a colourful mess! 

If you take a coloured filter it is possible to see clearly the layers in which the image is composed. The filter’s colours are red, green and blue, each one of them serves to reveal one of the three layers. I think it is such an interesting use of colour and surface pattern. 

I think I might take the basis of this idea of using three primary colours to create more colours and use it for a silk scarf print!



Cote D'azur Photoshoot


For my SS12 scarf collection I decided I wanted to go to the place where I always feel most inspired.... the South of France. India Hobson and I have been talking and planning this shoot for over a year, so to finally get out there in the sun to shoot was pretty amazing. The weather was perfect and as well as shooting we also got time to do a little sun bathing and exploring which was a bonus!
Aaron who did the last fashion film for me also flew out to film another fashion film. We shot it in Monaco and apart from getting told off every so often for using a tripod (apparently you can't shoot with a tripod in Monaco unless you have a permit!) it was a really exciting day.
I don't want to reveal too much of what happened and the amazing images we got so here are a few sneak peaks of behind the scenes.
A HUGE thank you to the following people who all helped and contributed in one way or another to make this fantastic shoot and experience happen.
India Hobson, Ellie Hallsworth, Aaron Cheesman, Galya & Nat Denaro, Lee Joseph Elliot, Lee Thompson, Beth Rees, Floriane Falcou, Joelle Falcou & Jessie Lane.
