Hi everyone, hope you have a wonderful week. I would like to tell you about a very special collaboration I have had the honour to be a part of!
A few years back, I came across a beautiful historical shoe brand called Memery. The brand was created by a very lovely talented lady named Mette Emery; it produces the most beautiful (and comfy!) replicas of actual historical shoes.
About a month ago, I and Mette decided to collaborate and create a unique postcard which represents Mette's brand. You can probably imagine my excitement. Bringing this project to life was absolutely thrilling!
At first, we developed some ideas and sketches. We decided to go with an illustration of the Ruth boots- one of Mette's most popular designs (and my forever favourite).
I felt like the materials I choose have to convey the magical aesthetic of the brand, therefore, I decided to go with materials that have vintage qualities; such as watercolours, paper scraps & dried flowers- a decision which I'm very happy about.
I used a colleague-making technique to provide the piece with a special 3D look.
