May I introduce to you: my design for the Malvern Spring Show 2009...
Based on this year's Borders Without Gardens theme of Handbags and Gladrags, hedging recreates the wall of a dressing room within which sits a mannequin on a carpet of turf, wearing a bodice of climbing hedera and clematis falling away to a train of ground level plants. The background incorporates mirrors which reflect the gown back into the space.
Truth be told, I'm at the stage now where I can't see the wood for the trees.
The design has consumed my mind since I completed the autumn show and I can't work out now whether it's ok or actually really, really not ok.
But, as with most things, I'll do it anyway and see what comes!
