The Devils in The Detail...  What we get up to behind the scenes, in the planning bunker and in the inspiration room of the world, as well as some of the work that's just too Devilish to go in the portfolio...

[ fashion jewellery event ]

Last week I had the privilege of again working with the fabulous team at Facets PR.  

This time I was designing and styling a press evening for the incredible team at Lyon & Turnbull.

Lyon & Turnbull are an auction house who are holding their first Jewellery auction on the 15th November.

The brief was that Facets wanted to engage the fashion media with the work that Lyon & Turnbull are doing and help them put the word out about the accessibility and beauty of the pieces up for auction.

The Connaught Street showroom is naturally divided into 3 spaces, which gave me the idea to create 3 distinct fashion trends that the collection could fit into.  I wanted to give it the feel of a studio space, an atelier.  So we created walls of tears and textures as you would find in a designer's studio.


The first room was the Opulence room!

Facets created trend stories, giving dictionary definitions of all of the titles.

Anna Hayman lent us beautiful wallpapers, prints, lampshade and fabric.

The Place lent us stunning kimonos.

All of these details helped give the room that real rich Gucci sense of more is more.

The second room represented the minimalism trend.  Lots of black and white and marble.

 I used poetry cards on the wall hung from metal lines.

The final room housed our Romantics trend.  Lots of flowers and florals.  Just look at all of those stunning chinese vases!  All coming up for auction with Lyon & Turnbull.
