Counter Feat: Vogue online feature

Today British Vogue online featured our current fundraising project, Counter Feat, of limited edition, handprinted art notes.

Holly Fulton told Vogue:

“When I was approached by the London Printworks, I had no hesitation in supporting them by designing a note. It’s a fundamental facility for designers and makers
in London and the withdrawal of all funding is a huge blow for them. London is renowned as a creative hub and it is essential for the facilities that provide the services and materials designers need to work to continue to flourish and grow. The threat to LPW and its future represents a sad symptom of the times and the highlights the need for funding in design in the UK.”

 

Victoria Beckham, who recently supported the cause by designing a Victoria Cat by Victoria Beckham £50 Art Note, had these kind words:

“I am proud that my business is based in London and it is important that we nurture the skills and talent within the British Fashion Industry, The London Printworks is one of the few remaining facilities in the UK that offers the opportunity to create bespoke textiles and their great work has to be supported.”


Thanks to both Holly Fulton, Victoria Beckham and all the artists and designers who have supported us by designing beautiful Art Notes.
