Rowan yarns spring/summer collections

Next week the new season of Rowan designs will be launched so I just wanted to take this opportunity to show you a few of my favourites as well as some images from behind the scenes.

Lisa Richardson and myself travelled to Italy to photograph two of the brochures along with two stories for magazine 57.

For the Simple Shapes Kidsilk Haze brochure we worked in a marble quarry in Carrera.

The scale of the place was beyond epic!

The next shoot is the Simple Shapes Creative Linen. We had to be up super early to be on location in time to catch the sunrise, but it was definitely worth it!
