DOMINIC JONES FOR MACHINE - A For the last two and a half weeks, I've been assisting on the latest window installation for Machine - A, a high end fashion boutique based in Soho, shopped in by stylists and fashionistas. Dominic Jones is an internationally acclaimed jeweller, crafting pieces for the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna. Dominic has designed a range of t-shirts inspired by the World Land Trust, a charity which aims to protect and preserve the worlds rainforests. Here is said t-shirt, modelled by Machine - A's Anna Trevelyan. Lovely!His design for the window installation was very ambitious, and nothing like it has been attempted in Machine - A before. Alongside Miss Poppy French and Mr Luke Abby, we set about realising Dominic's idea in time for the launch party on Wednesday 4th August. We turned the basement area of the store into a makeshift workshop cum studio:General Stress: The project was a steep learning curve - the window space is very small, and so putting the installation together was a logistical nightmare. Thankfully, we finished just in the nick of time.Press Release for the launch party event:
