Hi there! Welcome to the Maison Bentley Style Blog Party! For my regular readers, please excuse this interruption – I’m currently partying with fellow followers of Maison Bentley Style.
Welcome to my blog about my painting hobby. My first encounter with the original Mason Bentley blog was when Anna/Kate liked a couple of my fashion-inspired posts.
My interest in fashion-related art started this summer. The City Art Centre in Edinburgh held an exhibition in association with Condé Nast showing a century’s worth of photography from the publishing company’s archives. Many different styles of photos from Vogue and Glamour were shown, taken by famous photographers such as David Bailey, Erwin Blumenfeld and Helmut Newton.
I attended 5 great workshops based on the exhibition, exploring aspects of representations of the fashion world. It was 2 of these posts that Anna/Kate liked:
Since those workshops, I’ve taken a greater interest in a field that was previously totally foreign to me and have been reading a few fashion blogs to get more inspiration. I’ve found the fashion world to be very vibrant, full of passion, which from an artistic viewpoint is quite exciting.
Especially for the party, I’ve added a new “Inspired by fashion” menu item that shows all of my fashion-themed posts from the last few months. I hope you might take a little look and let me know if there’s anything that you like: Inspired by fashion. If you have a moment, my about page also showcases what I consider the best of my other drawings and paintings.
Unfortunately I’m not going to be able to spend as much time at this party as I would like, but I’m very much looking forward to visiting all of your blogs and getting to see what you’re doing and what you’re interested in. Please leave a comment to say hello!
PS If you could hear my accent over the party noise, you’d notice that although I’ve travelled down from Edinburgh, I’m not Scottish. I was raised in Suffolk, with Bury St Edmunds my hometown, and my roots connect me to the West Country and the Basque Country. Are there any fellow Suffolk folk here?
I hope to hear from you and make connections 🙂
