Little black dress on tailors dummy painting features a sleeveless black dress with sash bow and net under skirt displayed on a buff coloured tailor's dummy. There is a decorative black in scroll-work border which contains a hidden chandelier, cocktail glasses and an orchid filled urn. I painted this in my Norfolk studio, it is mounted, simply framed in lime-washed wood and ready for you to hang. The little black dress is a must have but do you keep it for yourself? I call this one 'Little Black Dress III', of course.


I have a background in fashion and textiles so this little series gave my the opportunity to really indulge myself. I have enjoyed the design process. The ink border includes some hidden elements to suggest a glamorous evening out with a chandelier and cocktail glasses. The intricate border was inspired by the fantastic paintings of Aubrey Beardsley, brilliant and controversial artist from the Art Nouveau period.
