Scarf 15 (sold)
Textile designers Alison Willoughby and Beatrice Mayfield launch AB, a collaborative label with a new collection of scarves this Christmas.
AB is the first project under the umbrella of Alison’s collective, Hoarder. Her studio practice has been exploring not placing work within a singular discipline, but how creativity can be channeled through a range of techniques, materials and art forms. So more to come…..watch this space....
Beatrice and Alison have a mutual love of experimenting with hand
constructed, embellished and embroidered surfaces. The collection uses
hand embroidery and pom-poms to create double-sided canvases. All
scarves are found, mainly on eBay, so the decision on choosing which are
bought is made quickly and there is a degree of randomness to the
colours, lengths and patterns available.
All work is made in London; scarves are 100% wool and are available from email@example.com at £135 each.
Alison is Skirtgirl. Based in London, forever using the skirt, (her
canvas, vista, media since 2001) is a tube or cone shaped garment
whatever discipline that may lie in. Function non-function, without the
constraint of commercialism. Collaborating, selling and exhibiting.
Clients have included The Fashion and Textiles Museum - Made in Mexico,
The Rebozo in Art, Culture & Fashion, The British Council, Urban
Outfitters, and Selfridges.
Beatrice specialises in hand constructed, embellished and embroidered
textiles. Using a range of traditional embroidery techniques, stitches
and processes pieces incorporate a high level of craftsmanship with
