Painted Fabrics Models


I recently posted the mesmerising work of artist and skin illustrator, Emma Hack. Her latest project was of hand painting live models in order to 'disappear' in front of the exquisitely hand printed Florence Broadhurst designs she was inspired by.

Although I could not quite place it, I was sure that I had seen a similar concept, more related to fashion in its realisation, elsewhere. After some digging around, so to speak, I found the above - A simply stunning editorial.

  5. Wow, I really love this. It's amazing how all the print and patterns have produced a 2D, flat image and definitely reminds me of the decorativeness of Klimt. So interesting!

  7. I keep loving all of the work you've posted from Emma Hack! Her sense of texture and color is just fantastic.
    I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves knitting - I start ALL these scarves, but don't know how to finish them yet haha.
    It makes me feel less lazy watching TV when I'm doing something else to occupy my time :)

    Hope your weekend is fantastic, dear!
