Prophetik at London Fashion Week: Illustrations for Amelia's Magazine





Just a quick post to say that I was so pleased to have 4 illustrations included in Amelia Gregory's review of the Prophetik catwalk show. It is well worth a visit to Jeff Garner's Prophetik site. It includes a beguiling and fascinating video in which he describes his ethos, and also shows something of the painstaking methods used to dye the fabrics using traditional, indeed ancient, methods and ingredients - hence the uniquely wonderful colours made from combinations of, for example, madder root, rumex, logwood, curled dock and gallnut. Even the leather for the shoes is vegetable-tanned.
