Here she is on a purple Louis Vuitton Epi Leather, paired with the countesses own quote “At my age one must ration one’s excitement!”

In fitting with the Downton Abbey traditional English theme, the reverse of the bag features a bone china teapot, and a slice of red velvet cake. Everybody loves a good afternoon tea!! :)

Mr Monopoly and Betty Boop on a Birkin!

What better than the iconic and mischievous Betty Boop, paired with Mr Monopoly, to transform this once Green Hermes Birkin! Here are snaps of the finished bag, and i will try and figure out how to upload the video making of, next! Bling baby bling! ‘I ain’t sayin she’s a Golddigga…’! This bag is inspired by the graffiti artist Alec Monopoly aka Mr Monopoly.

The client did not like the original green colour, so i decided the colour match the front to the existing blue front flap, but first to prepare the surface so it can be entirely primed!Mr monopoly birkin close up a Mr monopoly birkin close up bMr monopoly birkin close up d

Boyarde collaborates with Kiehl’s UK for Selfridges, London, Saturday February 7th!

It has been a very exciting start to the new year, with one of my favourite beauty brands asking me to collaborate with them! I I have been busily creating a signature Pop Art Diva for the celebration of the Chinese New year, taking place at Selfridges in Oxford street this weekend.

I decided to create a pop art diva inspired by my favourite Kiehl’s beauty product: Midnight recovery. I thought what better Disney icon for the job than Cinderella as after all  ‘The magic begins at midnight for this princess!’

If this takes your fancy and you want to know more please pop by Selfridges tomorrow, between 12-6pm to meet me in person, and find out how you can get your hands on your very own exclusive piece of Boyarde bag artwork.
