Artist Cross-Stitches For 2,000 Hours To Create Fashion Ads
England-based artist Inge Jacobsen cross-stitched fashion photographs for the Spring/Summer 2012 jewelry collection of Danish manufacturer Georg Jensen.
The contemporary series features Danish model, Freja Beha Erichsen, and dwells between realistic imagery and traditional craft.
Jacobsen used Coats plc anchor thread, and spent 2,000 hours cross-stitching eight images for the fashion campaign—with assistance of students from Royal School of Needlework, Hampton Court.
The finalized pictures, photographed by Sebastian Faena, were both fully and partially stitched, creating an interplay between photograph and thread.
Jacobsen’s series would be on exhibition at Georg Jensen’s stores during the upcoming fashion weeks in Copenhagen, New York, London, and other international flagship stores.
