Lilac Cufflinks for Hamish Bowles, International Editor at Large for Vogue Magazine
As the International Editor at Large for Vogue, Hamish Bowles is recognized as one of the most respected authorities on the worlds of fashion and interior design. With one of the largest private collections of vintage clothing in the world, this dapper, globetrotting style icon has made a name for himself as a fashion historian.
Friday, March 13, 2015 he was the guest lecturer at the Gibbes Museum of Art spring luncheon. The Gibbes invited me to design and make a special gift for him, which were the silver Lilac Cufflinks pictured above. I was inspired by his passion for the color lilac and designed the cufflinks based on the flower. The other image is of him showing them off to the ladies at the luncheon. It was quite an honor to create something unique for such a renowned fashion figure!
