LFW September 2010 - Designer Focus - Fannie Schiavoni

I had an invite to view Fannie's work from her PR agent otherwise I would not have been let into the NEWGEN tent to see it. While walking through I was wondering where her work was when I came across a room which housed this amazing work of art. I was entranced and started shooting. Then when I turned to ask who the work was by I was further surprised to find that it was exactly what I had been invited to see. My next happy coincidence was that Fannie was actually there so I was able to photograph her too. She told me that the inspiration for her work stemmed from a crystal she had found in a small shop in NY. From it grew the SciFi / Blade Runner theme of her pieces. Then mix it with a trip to Tokyo in the summer and here is the result. She also had smaller pieces at the show on the back of which she had worked in Swarovski crystals and in doing so takes us right back the source of her initial idea.

I love it when art is married into fashion. An absolute delight. This is a great example of such.

Oh, I loved her jewellery! We tried some of the pieces on. I thought she and her partner are so lovely, and they were really forthcoming with information about her wonderful work. What a great idea to put her next to this amazing piece of art. xxx
