I am always interested to see artists reinterpreting fashion icons and new possibilities for fashion illustration.
Embroidery and stitch craft has been resurging in popularity over the last few years and many artists are using it in their work. Inge Jacobsen has taken magazine covers from Vogue and other fashion magazines and cross stitched the whole surface making them like a tapestry.
She says it is "as a way of connecting femininity from the past with the present" and to make viewers "acknowledge the surface of the photograph and look at it, rather than through it, thereby seeing it as an object". Inge Jacobsen
