Harvey Nichols Spring Summer 2009 fashion show

I designed and illustrated these invitations for the Harvey Nichols Spring / Summer 2009 fashion show. There was 2 shows scheduled - one during the day and then one at night. As the show was based on 'South Pacific Holiday' I decided to have them look like postcards you might find in Hawaii that were then sent out to the customers invited.

There was also a trunk show in Personal Shopping that season which I designed a one colour invitation for - again, I wanted continuity with the Hawaii theme so played with a retro hibiscus print.

Harvey Nichols 'All I Want For Christmas' paper dolls

I was asked by the Press and Marketing Dept in Harvey Nichols Edinburgh to illustrate life-sized paper dolls for a pre-Christmas event. They were to look like the 1950s 'scraps' that children dressed up with clothes that came with fold down tabs. I styled them in outfits from around the shop and drew them. All clothes from the Autumn / Winter 2011 collections.

Suzie wears Givenchy shirt, BCBG Maxazria leggings, Christian Louboutin shoes and CĂ©line bag.

Pam wears Vivienne Westwood dress, shoes and bag.

Jemima wears Dolce & Gabbana dress and bag, Jeffrey Campbell shoes

Nicki wears Alexander McQueen dress and bag, shoes by Prada


Vivienne Westwood toes pirate boots

Jeffrey Campbell - Rockaway cut out wedge ankle boots

Alexander McQueen union jack skull clutch

Vivienne Westwood heart bag

I also designed and illustrated a capture card for the event.

Harvey Nichols Annual Staff Party 2012

Harvey Nichols holds it's annual staff party next month. The theme is 'Electric Circus', which is handy as it also held at the venue 'Electric Circus'.

My fascination with neon continues. My search for a decent typeface based on neon made me recreate the one seen here, painstakingly drawn in Illustrator to make the logo.

Gasoline Dance Machine - Cosmonauts

The Cosmonauts were the special guests at Gasoline Dance Machine in February.

Menergy Valentine's Mascara Massacre

A new direction for Menergy in 2012. I'm wanting to use photos I have taken. For the Valentine's Mascara Massacre I made the outfit, photographed and styled the model and then manipulated it in Photoshop. The new logo was a bit of fun and a nice twist on the classic 'Menergy' logo.
