My header image, The Dress / Lamp Tree 2002 by Tim Walker (who’s photography I adore) I feel fully represented my idea beind The the title ‘The Hideaway’. The name was developed from the idea that when I was young I used to make homemade dens and retreats at my Grans house which backs onto the woods, and I would surround myself with all the things I love hence the style hideaway!
The image reminds me of a possible installation you could possibly find orchestrated in the window of say Topshop flagship store. Tim walker has infact recently worked on collaboration with Peter Jensen and set designer Shona Heath at Dover street market.
Tim Walkers exhibition at the Design Museum hugely inspired me and my way of working. I loved his sketchbooks and his free approach, finding inspiration in absolutely everything. It is one of my all time favourite exhibitions and I purchased the book, Pictures, which is just beautiful.
The image is girly and bright and the way the clothes are on hangers reminds me of how my room is with my clothes hung up all around me for endless inspiration.
