Architecture, morality and a Venice honeymoon

Want to know how to turn your holiday photographs into interesting clothing, or even works of art?

The excellent Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark once released an album called  "Architecture and Morality" and it could provide a soundtrack to this new A-line skirt, which made its public debut on my September honeymoon in Venice.

It is, of course, vegan-friendly and features an eco-friendly digital print of a colourful group of houses I photographed during our previous holiday, to Gran Canaria.

The image was transferred to the cotton satin fabric for me by the Centre For Advanced Textiles at Glasgow School of Art.

I used the same printed material for the accompanying clasp-frame handbag.

The Canary Island homes captured my attention - and imagination - as they shone on the hillside above the main motorway around Gran Canaria.

So it was fitting that their first outing came in the sunshine too as we wandered around the lovely canals of the famous, historic and romantic Italian city.
