Wendy Solomon’s Jacket

This jacket commission reflected Wendy Solomon’s love of her garden and her New Zealand heritage. Wendy chose the animals, birds and plants to embellish her jacket, I then developed the embroideries to wrap round the jacket like an overgrown leafy garden, and through a series of fittings we developed a jacket shape that suited her perfectly.
