Justine Limpus Parish

I just noticed that the image at the top of the Blog is by Justine Limpus Parish! We had an exhibition here at my gallery in 2005 called Opulent Splendor which she organized. Her work is the 5th and 6th image in this slide show.

  1. Yes, her illustrations are beautiful! The exhibition label read:

    “Alchemy”
    Bernina Fashion Show 2002

    9 yards of Shibori hand pleated and painted tissue gold lame was used for the train and jacket. The dress is Shibori hand pleated iridescent chiffon with a slip of gold pleated devore’ velvet. There are “free-lace” panels down the front of the dress, at the neckline and sewn into sections of the train. These panels are made by free-motion stitching with metallic threads over gold trim, silk flower petals and leaves, onto Sulky Solvy – a wash-out stabilizer.

    • Oh. Another one of THOSE. (Just kidding!) I wish I could have seen it myself. It sounds spectacular! Thanks for sending the label information, Cathy.

  2. Spectacular! Do you recall what fibers were used in the Justine Parish gown? Justine and I had been corresponding regarding possible tour arrangements for ARLIS 2013. When I saw her blog for the first time ( http://www.home.earthlink.net/~parishjt/ ), I expressed admiration in her talent as an illustrator. She generously allowed me to use one of her illustrations for our blog banner. (Thanks again, Justine!) If any of you know another illustrator who’d like to be highlighted with a banner image and bio, please have them contact me. I hope to update our banner with a new fashion illustration every quarter. Thank you for sharing, Cathy!
