Exhibition: Hello, my name is Paul Smith

When I studied fashion design, many years ago, I was totally into British fashion design. Paul Smith was a mayor influence. Even though my fashion design years are behind me I still am interested in fashion. This exhibition will give you a look inside the world of Paul Smith: his inspirations, his working methods and his obsessions (collecting, photography and travel).

Spaces relevant to Paul Smith are recreated throughout the exhibition: the first Nottingham shop, the famous Paris hotel room/showroom, the designer's office full of objects collected from his many travels and his design studio. The products of many collaborations are also on display. I highly recommend a visit!

Event: TOYCON UK 2014

ToyCon UK in London was amazing! It was so much fun meeting the artists, other collectors and be surrounded by so many beautiful art toys. I also attended the panels about toy customizing, resin and 3D printing. It was so inspiring! Of course I could not leave without bringing some art toys back home with me.

Sadly it was impossible to take beautiful photo's of my own work at ToyCon. They were hiding behind a Mega Munny who was in the way of every shot that I tried to take. The custom Androids and the custom Tea are available. Just contact me or the people from The Toy Chronicle if you are interested.

Photo's of ToyCon UK can be found at my TOYCON UK 2014 photo album on Flickr
