Sunday 5th May - "Design Road" workshops at Tashkeil in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Here are some images from my first two days in Jeddah, teaching as part of the "Design Road" project at the Tashkeil creative space, supported by the British Council. I'm here with window designer Laura Beckett - who you can see sitting in her Abaya - the traditional dress for ladies to wear outside. The beautiful ladies in white are a few of the participants learning my trademark origami accessories to start inventing their own. They are artists from different backgrounds including interior design, fashion design, graphic design, and some specifically Abaya / Thorbe design - of which you can see one customised with graphic appliqué. I'm also digging these iridescent sneakers which perfectly fit my shiny collection presentation. After the day's creative fun, we visited the beach of the Red Sea for sunset which apparently sits on the horizon leading straight over to Africa!
