Design Inspiration from Across the Pond
I made a quick trip to London and Milan this week for work. I was in London exactly 24 hours and Milan even fewer, but I did see a few things that sparked my interest.
I love this composition of the Union Jack made of umbrellas. Very clever installation by colleagues at a sister agency.
This image was outside our meeting room. It got me thinking about a stacked version of my Spectrum quilt. I drew it last night after dinner and now just need time to make it.
Milan is known for its fashion vibe and my hotel was in the fashion district. I wanted to go for a long walk, but client drinks bled into dinner with the head of a sister agency. So I was especially delighted by this fantastical garmet on display outside the nHow hotel.
Dinner was terrific, and I learned that even the dessert is very fashionable in Milan. And now I head home, but am grateful to have had a productive work trip and a few sewing design ideas as well. Ciao!
