Diggin’ Delaunay

As the Tate Modern is celebrating a lady who is often praised in the art world and forgotten for her fashion, I too want to share a little love for Sonia Delaunay and her decorative, abstract design.

Known best for her use of colour, Delaunay had a creative harmony between form and the rhythms in colour that changed the game of fashion. I first came across her work post A levels, pre university, at college, where her illustrations ignited an excitement in me. The idea that the boundaries of clothes could be eliminated, meant the boundaries of fashion could be eliminated, and women could just wear art in the way Delaunay just painted a pattern over the top of a womens silhouette.

She boldly eradicated the need to colour in between the lines. Her work reminds us that fashion is art and in that she changed the rules for fashion and fashion illustration. She painted a world that broke the rules and gave us a game that no longer has any, making both the catwalks and the pages of fashion a whole lot more interesting.

Love affairs

Yes. You heard it here first. I am cheating on fashion. Cheating on fashion with furniture. Cheating on fashion with insurance, grocery shopping, and quite frankly all things grown up. God forbid, I am even trying that thing they call saving! Now I know what you are thinking. You cannot decide whether to call me a hoe bag for these sordid affairs or a bore, as lets face it, my choice of infidelities are anything but glamorous. But just to reassure you, and myself, here is a list of loves and lusts that occupy my mind, hard drive and wardrobe wish list .
