Happy Holidays Mawi people! Our Christmas card this year- the best ever, if we do say so ourselves- was created by the brilliant Margot Bowman.
Margot is barely out of Central Saint Martin’s but is already making a name for herself as an artist on the London scene. She’s sought after by cool publications and retailers alike, already having put pen to paper for Urban Outfitters and “live illustrating” for Topshop during London Fashion Week.
In an interview with Dazed she quoted a favourite phase: “It’s not about the world of design it’s about designing the world.”
I think we’ll be seeing and hearing a lot more from Margot…
I spoke to a designer in India recently who had been doing some work with Rankin, nothing is yet confirmed so I can’t give anything away, but she was full of enthusiasm for how personally involved and energetically invested he is in every project he lays his hand to. And there are many…
One of his latest is Hunger- a creative print and online biannual magazine that positions itself in Dazed’s line of succession. Rankin’s own site says, “The Hunger provides creative beings with a new platform for uncompromised self-expression, innovation and discovery. Working with recognised and emerging talents in the arts, fashion and editorial, The Hunger seeks out cultural progression and distinction.”
Each issue will come with a female and a male cover. Have you noticed this trend for magazines producing multiple covers for the same issue? British Vogue did it around the Royal Wedding with the dreamiest shots of Lara & co. I was ALMOST tempted to collect them all! (Which I guess was the idea…)
Mawi has been extensively shot in the Winter issue. I particularly love the shot of Hayley Atwell (top)- ravishing don’t ya think?
