We’ve seen Kate’s work before, and I love her crocheting genius – but now she combines that with another passion of mine – Americana – so I think it deserves another mention. She has been so kind to give us a sneak preview of her work ‘Kate’s Diner’ based on New York culinary delights, re-invented in wool and yarn with her trademark wry and witty comic touches. The work debuts at the Rebecca Hossack Gallery in New York in December and I can’t wait to see the whole body of work.
A knitted doll of Anna Wintour hanging herself because she has nothing to wear has been banned from the trendy Port Eliot Festival in England, though the exhibition includes a dog wearing a burkha. The artist was forced to drop the Anna Doll on the grounds that ‘Anna wouldn’t like it.’ Fashion fascism or what?
