Our fabulous Judith of Frankly Frankland is showing her latest couture collection in Newcastle, opening this Friday. She has made each piece by hand, and like Judith, they are full of surprises. Her show is part of an exhibition showcasing the work of talented women of the north east in their respective disciplines also including fine art, textiles, jewellery and illustration.
Her space will be like a 'home away from home' - Judith is creating the feel of her extraordinary living room at the gallery which will feature fashion illustations of her collection by Manny More, whose vibrant work can be seen above. It's an exciting collaboration; Manny conveys the high fashion energy of Judith's outfits beautifully.
I'll be covering Judith's collection here, but if you're in the area it's well worth seeing in person - there's so much to explore in a shirt alone! Preview at the Holy Biscuit Gallery in Newcastle (opposite the Biscuit Factory) Friday, 8th April from 6-8pm. Come for a glass of wine and a chat with Judith!
