Happy New Year Everyone!
What a fantastic 2015 it was for Boyarde and her small team; 2014 brought some unforeseen challenges as well as opportunities. But 2015 was the year that Boyarde’s art went from strength to strength with clients from all over the world commissioning her work, from London, New York to Brazil, Turkey, France, Lebanon, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and even Qatar Royalty. We moved into our new studio in The Bussey Building in South East London and fell in love with it raw creative energy, and the fact that we spent most of the summer on the roof top bar looking at the 360 degree view of London with a cocktail in tow! We worked super hard painting a fabulous array of Hermes items from Kelly’s to Birkin’s, a rainbow of colours of Goyard St Louis Totes to Duffle bags, the trusty selection of Louis Vuittons and an introduction to personalisation with a twist, where Boyarde created Pop Art Initials for LK Bennett. Boyarde had her first ever Art with Fashion Show, exhibiting exclusively for London Fashion Week at The Churchill Regency Hyatt, with an added soiree hosted at The Churchill bar for Frieze London. Boyarde worked twice with the fabulous Kiehls and Selfridges, creating exclusive Diva bags which went down a storm.
We have lots lined up for this year and Boyarde is planning to get her art to reach out even further across the globe, and exciting collaborations with global brands. Here are a selection of fabulous pieces that Boyarde created and a few extras thrown in! Thank you to everyone who made this possible and watch out 2016, here we come! xx an exciting project for Kiehls and Selfridges for Valentines Day, hand painting 30 Kiehls Totes with a Boyarde Diva inspired by Cinderella and Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery oil Bonnie And Clyde style Minnie and Mickey on this Miniature Prada Snow White just loves her shopping too much!
