Monday was a fun day this week! Me and Sarah got to go and work in the basement of Liberty, to decorate and bedazzle this frog for Liberty's Christmas windows. He was made by Elemental Design for Liberty's Swampy scheme... The other windows have all kinds of creatures, including giant spiders, jellyfish, flying fish, a mouse flying through the sky on a bicycle.... eee!
A MUST SEE in London this Christmas!

A small boutique in Kensington, that sells high fashion and also offers styling appointments with the Italian sisters who own the shop.
Elemental Design installed 2 windows, based on a new product that the shop was about to stock - Juliet's Got a Gun - a new perfume.
We came up with this scheme, where the mannequins are surrounded by stereotypically masculine guns, given a sparkly finish (by myself in the workshop - that was a fun day!), and also more feminine feathers... The mannequins themselves have oversized black roses as heads.
The shop has also unfortunately had a series of break-ins, so we hoped that this scheme might deter any future deviants!

some snapshots from my life...

It's been ages!
Back at the beginning of September Elemental Design installed these magnificent pods into the atrium at Liberty. They were inspired by Manolo Blahnik's new collection, and his pop up shop in Liberty.
We spent weeks making flowers using individually cut petals from luxurious fabrics... These were carefully wired into huge pods (2m diameter!) and we spent the night at Liberty installing them.
At 7am we lay down on the floor in the scarf room, and watched as the pods were hoisted up towards the ceiling by some funny blokes on cables. Very surreal.
But beautiful non? go and see for yourself...
