I've often had to rely on the good fortune of having talented friends to help me create something special. Such collaborations are memorable, as was this one in particular. Violet Cooper is an illustrator, and maker of many things too; her wit and quirk transform ordinary things into wonderful stories. See her website www.violetcooper.com. This postcard was printed for the launch of one my knitwear labels 'Jersey Jones' in 2006, and is an ink illustration by Anthony Chiappin (visual artist, graphic designer & my darling), and Violet built up the 3D collage effect around it. And she also handmade those hundreds of broaches from vintage fabric finds for each cardigan.
