Magnet Fashion City Sophie Rabin Red Dress
This magnet portrays an image inspired by a striking red evening dress made by Sophie Rabin, 1950-5, which features in our current exhbition Fashion City: How Jewish Londoners shaped global style. The image has been beautifully drawn by Amy Hood, a London based illustrator.
The Fashion City exhibition uncovers the major contribution of Jewish designers, makers and retailers in transforming London into a vibrant fashion capital.
This magnet is part of an exclusive range by Amy Hood which was commissioned by Museum of London so we asked Amy how she approached the commission: "I'm not sure I've ever needed an excuse to draw vintage fashion pieces and outfits, so this was, quite frankly, a dream commission. I love creating textures and building colour through layers of coloured pencil, and the variety of these particular accessories and garments offered a great opportunity to experiment with the medium further, as well as pair it with some recently learnt digital techniques. It was a joy to highlight such colourful accessories in the repeat pattern, and to have the opportunity of updating the traditional fashion plate model to reflect the beautiful diversity of London and the UK."
