New Collaboration: Alison Willoughby X Beatrice Mayfield


Scarf 15 (sold)
 

Textile designers Alison Willoughby and Beatrice Mayfield launch AB, a collaborative label with a new collection of scarves this Christmas.

AB is the first project under the umbrella of Alison’s collective, Hoarder. Her studio practice has been exploring not placing work within a singular discipline, but how creativity can be channeled through a range of techniques, materials and art forms. So more to come…..watch this space....

Beatrice and Alison have a mutual love of experimenting with hand constructed, embellished and embroidered surfaces. The collection uses hand embroidery and pom-poms to create double-sided canvases. All scarves are found, mainly on eBay, so the decision on choosing which are bought is made quickly and there is a degree of randomness to the colours, lengths and patterns available.

All work is made in London; scarves are 100% wool and are available from alison@alisonwilloughby.com at £135 each.

Alison is Skirtgirl. Based in London, forever using the skirt, (her canvas, vista, media since 2001) is a tube or cone shaped garment whatever discipline that may lie in. Function non-function, without the constraint of commercialism. Collaborating, selling and exhibiting.  Clients have included The Fashion and Textiles Museum - Made in Mexico, The Rebozo in Art, Culture & Fashion, The British Council, Urban Outfitters, and Selfridges.

Beatrice specialises in hand constructed, embellished and embroidered textiles. Using a range of traditional embroidery techniques, stitches and processes pieces incorporate a high level of craftsmanship with contemporary design.
