My picture of the day (evening!)
I love the glamour of the historical costume, the high boots and the hair!
After all the excitement surrounding the couture shows and the Kate Moss bag collection for Longchamp, I need a little bit of quiet space and familiar images! A lovely self-portrait, the painting captures a moment of self reflection, or reverie perhaps. Whilst is it has been said that the ornate elements of the paintings refer to her Eastern European heritage, to me it evoke the charms of historic costume and the power of dressing up. I am working on a new collection themed around the history of fashion; this image is on my mood board!
