Postcards from Brooklyn
Kathy was extremely pleased to be chosen by The House of Dior for this commission; a collaboration between the fashion house and the iconic women’s magazine Harper’s Bazaar. Her brief was to pair a series of Dior designs with iconic Brooklyn settings for a postcard collection.
She adds, “It had helped immensely that I’d visited the Dior celebratory exhibition ‘The Designer of Dreams’ exhibition at the V&A before lock down, for the direct exposure to his work enabled me to more fully understand the colour and cut of these fabulous designs, developed post war in response to his utopian vision and desire to bring back what he felt was ‘the neglected art of pleasing’.
This really was a dream job.”
