This is my first paper model for a new personal project: a series of insects inspired by fashion designers and victorian entomological illustrations. I was first inspired to do this when I submitted an idea for a Thames and Hudson book on paper craft.
We were asked to create a design based on the permanent collections at the V&A. For this bee I have been really inspired by Mary Karantzou 'resort 2018' collection. Such beautiful and inspiring work, I love her use of pattern, texture and colour.
