Dublin collective pays homage to fashion’s feisty Iris Apfel in new print series

Jill & Gill – a Dublin based collaborative studio, made up of illustrator Jill Deering and printmaker Gillian Henderson – launch their first solo show in celebration of their first birthday in business together

The exhibition saw the design and creation of 25 unique screen printed artworks, featuring the unmistakable face of Iris Apfel, to embody her colourful style.

Often clad in feathers, faux fur and more than her own body weight in jewellry, Iris's dedication to creativity and eccentricity, demonstrated through her fashion choices, is simply inspiring.

Each limited-edition piece has been printed on 300gsm cotton paper, with each layer of the image screen-printed in a multitude of finishes and hand embellishments, informed by her eclectic permutations of designer clothing and exotic accessories.

The prints are now available to purchase online. (via Creative Boom)
