We LOVE...

It's fair to say that most of what we love, live and breathe is feathers & sequins here at Alter Ego, so imagine our delight when we stumbled across this on t'internet! 

London-based artist Kate McGwire makes intrinsic and intricate artwork from the molted feathers of pigeons. 

Her art is a labour of love, often taking months or even years to collect her materials from hundreds of different sources... although first stop for me would be trafalgar square with a loaf of bread...

Alter Ego @ London Fashion Week!

Wow, what a few weeks... First Burning Man (blog to come, lots to say!) and then an Alter Ego appearance at London Fashion Week... we couldn't be happier! 

We were honoured to have one of the most talked about new artists of this year, Queen of Hearts, shake it out diva style in one of our Alter Ego double shoulder pieces, for the Sheer Magazine LFW launch party. And doesn't she look fabulous?!

Since February this year, Queen of Hearts has been creating quite a stir, becoming one of the darlings of the new music and fashion scene alike. With articles in The Guardian, The Times, Q, Music Week and Sheer magazine, she's been dubbed as the new Kylie / Goldfrapp with a vocal electronic sound and a couture style to die for. Though her debut album is set for release in 2012, watch out for this sassy lady as she'll be touring far and wide this year. 

Our Alter Ego flavour of the month, Queen Of Hearts in gorgeous couture performance costumes - couldn't be a more perfect fit for us! 

Supporting Queen of Hearts and other up and coming talent, Sheer Magazine is exactly what the industry's undiscovered artists have been waiting for. A brand new magazine focussing on fashion, art, photography, and music, Sheer Magazine is now available on the shelves of Selfridges, Harrods, and Smiths amongst many, launching in over 40 countries during this London Fashion Week.
