In May I posted this picture on Facebook.
I had sent the images off to Spoonflower who had printed them onto organic cotton sateen. I had desperately wanted to use them, but was unsure about copyright etc. They’re old Victorian horticulture prints and I think the style is just so beautiful. I decided I’d contact the Royal Horticultural Society later. It was all a little too much for Collection One. Prints would wait until Collection Two.
Now I love Dries Van Noten. I read an interview with him last year and fell a little bit in love with him as he described frantically making jam when stressed.
This is his Spring/Summer 2012 Collection:
My prints! A bit bigger, but…
I’m hoping this is a case of great minds…
Maybe I’ll have to make some hydrangea prints instead… The colours are very beautiful.
