Jean Muir and Inspiration......

Myself and my sister in law went to see the Jean Muir Exhibition currently showing at the National Museum in Edinburgh today. I was very impressed with the simple lines and construction of some of the garments, and it showed how much styles transcend through the decades. It's always inspirational to hear others thought processes.....Jean Muir only designed her collections every six months, on a Sunday morning, from her white bed (has good taste then!) with a bottle of champagne at the side of her bed....I'm liking her style....

On other news....The Lines new exhibition opened it's doors on Saturday (and celebrated it's 14th birthday with cake and Bucks Fizz!) with new artwork from Nikki Monaghan. New Mimi Pearl goodies are available, including new one off slip on freshwater pearl necklaces, pearl clusters and silk and vintage lace lavender drawer scenters. I took my inspiration for this exhibition from one of Nikki Monaghan's works in tones of electric blue to green to grey. Stupidly, I didn't manage to capture any images of my new work...that'll teach me. This exhibition will run until 17th February 2009.
