MY LATEST CURATED PROJECT FOR NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY.
PATRICIA NICOLAS X NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY.
VOGUE 100: A CENTURY OF STYLE.
Who, What, Where, When, Why, How?
It's fashion season, yet again! An exciting time of the year was made even more interesting as I had
the lovely opportunity to design for the Vogue100 exhibition, at the National Portrait Gallery in
London. I was asked to select two covers and develop collections based on each of the covers by
Vogue. The end product was a 7 piece lip collection, based on a 1960's cover. Can't you imagine
Eddie Sedgwick wearing the drop earrings? I can, very fabulous, very Kylie Jenner lips a la 60's!
The seven pieces includes necklaces, ring, studs, drop earrings and a bracelet.
THE INSPIRATION AND DESIGN
This is one of the two covers I considered, but did not opt for, as the NPG felt that the lip
collection was really rocking. It's always such fun to work with Vogue, and
especially to celebrate their 100 years. You'd never know by its cover that it's
100 years, I guess botox really does work...
THE LAUNCH PARTY
This was the launch of the exhibition, there we're tons of celebrities and press personalities.
It's so humbling to have such great talents interested in my pieces, thanks guys! :)
I am so happy and honored to get to work on this project,
I truly think the National Portrait Gallery is one of the best museums in the world,
and the project has truly been a pleasure!
