I am going to a talk on;
Thea Porter and Bohemian Chic 70s Fashion
and will report back next week.
Thea Porter (1927–2000) came to epitomize bohemian chic in 1970s London. She established her combination of fashion and interior design, cultivating clients such as Pink Floyd and The Beatles, Faye Dunaway, Elizabeth Taylor and Barbra Streisand – as well as royal patrons including Princess Margaret.
Alice is not the only designer to be influenced by tattoos and I will go along to this talk too:
Tattoo Artist, Mo Coppoletta:
The world’s most celebrated tattoo artist talks about his art
Take a peek into the private world of the tattoo parlour, its artists and clients – a journey into the exotic ephemera of the tattooist’s art. Born and raised in Verona, Mo Coppoletta has been a devotee to religious and decorative art from an early age. At 27, he began his tattooing career and quickly gained a dedicated following for his designs, founding a parlour, The Family Business, in London’s Exmouth Market in 2003. Mo has also been exploring different mediums, such as his Liberty print collaboration.
Keep an eye out for Sarah’s future posts on both of these fascinating designers.
