Of the Shadow (2014)


Collaboration with milliner Noel Stewart on his 2014 'Of the Shadow' couture hat collection. 


A collection of hats created on sunbeds at local tanning salons using the cyanotype printing process - an early form of photography first employed by English botanist Anna Atkins.  The designs were created by applying photosensitive chemicals to leather and placing it underneath a body in a sunbed. The fabrics were then fashioned into a collection of hats and sold in luxury stores internationally. Each hat is a unique work.
