How to wear your art - A style interview


How would you describe your own style?

I dress for art and for colour. I collect the art of my friends with dedicated passion. My collections surround and engulf me. When I leave the house, I am reluctant to leave the art and colour behinnd so I wrap myself in both and sashay forth into the world: a walking collage, a graffito: brash, glittering, bejewelled and multi coloured.

I make my own necklaces, and I also wear bespoke jewellery by Anothai Hansen, Amanda Caines, Fernanda Latif, Alicia Piller and Anne Sophie Cochevelou. I design my own kimonos, and Diane Goldie often reproduces (hand paints) my own art and my friend's art onto them. I don't so much as get dressed in the morning as curate myself. My art clothes and jewellery keep me strong, and ready to face whatever the world might throw at me.

How has your style developed over the years?

It has become wilder, more flamboyant, more about art than dressing 'appropriately', whatever that means!



What would you consider the most important components of your style?

Colour and art. And I am anti conventional fashion.



Do you feel you have a signature style?

Yes indeed. As I have said: art and colour. Very personal art. And big, strange jewellery.
