Hello from Japan!
I have been 100% rubbish in updating my blog over this past couple of months....I've been locked away in the studio around the clock working on my new pieces which will be unleashing tomorrow at the opening of the exhibition!
I can't believe I have been here for 3 months now and in a few days I will wave sayonara to Japan and whizz off to the UK just in time for Christmas!
For most of the time it's been work akimbo here in the studio in Mino however, a couple of weeks ago I took a few days break to Osaka and Kyoto! That was mucho fun and even the novelty of lying in bed, watching Columbo and eating ice lollies was GLORIOUSSS as I was mega mega exhausted!
Last week I was working up in Tokyo! All of my new pieces for my off-season collection were hauled up there and I got to work with an awesome team in creating a series of images of my latest work which, will also be exhibited in the museum alongside the garments. There was also some time for plenty of shopping, sightseeing and general fun timezzzz!
Oooooh and be sure to check out the feature all about my time as Artist in Residence in Japan that I wrote in the new issue of Notion Magazine... it's out now so pop to the shops and get your juicy copy...or if you are snowed in or whatever you can also read the piece online by clicking HERE!!!!!
I would really like to write more but, after installing in the gallery and frantically wrapping everything up over this past few days I would really love to wash my hair tonight and go to sleep...
I'll be whipping out the images of the exhibition, which is titled, 'Let Momo Eat Cake' alongside the photoshoot in the next few days once launches/farewell parties/ flights of doom/packing and sleeping are all out the way...I'll slip out further tales of Japan times and photos too...FO SHO.
I shall leave you with a couple of snaps from my Osaka extravaganza!!!
Toodle Pip for now!!!
Love and Sushi,
