I have been back from Zambia for 10 days now, but below are some in-production images of ranges I was designing on my design consultancy with Jackal & Hide Design House in Lusaka, Zambia. My brief was to expand on their in-house made accessories ranges - in particular their fashion rnages, scarves, jewellery and bags. Jackal&Hide are foremost leather bag designers so I wanted to keep leather as a running link/theme in my designing.
Not great pics but get idea!
Scarf range - using locally brought linens and Leather tassles and Indian sari fabrics...the idea was COLOUR and vibrancy with this range!
I designed this range of tassle clutch bags and purses - cowgirl range - the first clutch bag that went into the shop sold within 2 hours!
Jewellery Range for Jackal&Hide - these are some sampling images of range I started - knotting the leather and using gorgeous bone beads, cowhorn and lesther tassles
Candlestick range - embellishing candlesticks - spraypainting, and adding aluminium discs gypsy style, leather and beads and leather tassles
Embellishing Bowls - painting and adding aluminium discs
Some wind chimes/wall art - handcut metal hearts and tassles
