While chatting with a fellow stationery designer on Twitter I discovered the stunning work of Jane Wilson-Marquis. Her hand-painted collection immediately drew me in; I wanted to see more. Jane’ s inspiration “derives from Greco-Roman, Medieval and the Arts and Crafts periods. Her clothes create a romantic vision and wrap the wearer in sculptured swatches of luxurious fabrics.” Hand-painted flourishes take fashion as art to the next level with the tactile quality of each painted stroke.
As I dove deeper in to the Jane Wislon site I discovered her “Wearable Art” Collection and was simply blown away. The sculptural quality of each gown combined with heavily painted bodices was immediately enchanting. As an eclectic wedding gown choice or spirited attendant’s dress, these painted designs would take center stage at any celebration.
I must say thank you to Jane for her stunning talent, innovative designs and artistic eye - she is truly an inspiration!
