It is no secret that I am fan of visual artist Rob Ryan, who is especially famous for his detailed paper cut outs. Having always followed his work I was so pleased to meet him at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show when I invited him to come see the Stylist front cover we had created completely out of flowers, after he kindly emailed to say how much he loved the cover. Having honed his craft at the Royal College of Art, Rob’s extremely intricate, detailed work is simply awe inspiring. So, this is why I had to share this stunning ‘wedding’ dress that Rob created for Vogue (a little while back) – I just think is absolutely fabulous!
And it seems that Rob loves a good wedding having created several pieces, such as this charming handkerchief with the idea that the bride could give it to her bridesmaids as a gift on her wedding day or vice versa. The cotton hankie is hand printed in blue (something blue!) and comes in a little hand-printed box, reading ‘Forever my dearest friend, you shall always be…’
And never restricting himself to paper, this lucky bride got Rob to design part of her wedding dress with this lazercut that was then lovingly sewn on by the bride’s mother giving her dress a unique design personal to the bride.
