Portraits of a group of British celebrities will go under the hammer for Oxfam in London to benefit woman in West Africa.
Sixteen modern British icons – including Annie Lennox, Sophie Dahl, Yasmin Le Bon, Rosamund Pike, Liberty Ross, Laura Bailey and more – have been captured on canvas by fashion designer Alice Temperley and photographer Adam Whitehead. The pair have reinterpreted Norman Parkinson’s photographs, and the images have been printed on life-size canvas.
“We are very excited about this project and the quest we embarked on in general to produce something entirely different every season to showcase our clothes,” Temperley told VOGUE.COM. “This particular project is very important to me as it also aims to give back to a cause that is close to my heart. Working with all the great talent on this was inspiring and a lot of fun. To me that is what fashion and creativity should ideally be about.”
