Marian Kihogo is fabulously TWO!

It was such a special night on the 20th of December 2011 at St Martins Lane Hotel. They were so generous to host a celebratory dinner in their much celebrated restaurant Asia De Cuba for the lovely Marian Kihogo who has worked so hard for the last 2 years to create a visionary platform for the communication of what fashion really is and how it is to be perceived, and above all that it is inclusive…Thank you ever-so-much for inviting me to be part of the celebrations!

A toast to Marian Kihogo

The Artwork: I had to capture my feelings in a third collage-drawing I have made on Marian. She is depicted as a gold fairy and her dress is made up of pattern pieces – all off-cuts, thrown on the floor of a cutter’s workroom that I have been collecting….I am once again playing with the interaction between negative and positive space.

The Invitation: St. Martins Lane were absolutely top hosts in arranging a lavish drinks reception and spectacular dinner for us all – Definitely worth a visit if you are in the centre..I also had an opportunity to meet some lovely people at the dinner…A familiar face – Alistair Guy, Hannah Almassi of Gracia magazine who informs me she is a fan of my pattern artworks, the lovely Daisy De Villeneuve who is a fabulous illustrator, Lisa – a bubbling power magnet – Head of Harrods social networking, the very beautiful Tolula Adeyemi who was Marian’s guest of honour and Sabina Sdemrit from Access Fashion to name a few…

I was also spoilt with a goody bag filled with treats from┬áDaisy (also my Mama’s name) by Marc Jacobs, Mulberry, Bodhi, Weleda, Mavala of Switzerland, Violent Lips, Biscuiteers, Diego Dalla Palma, Orla Kiely, Revlon, Jainnisa.

Thank you for a wonderful night Marian!
