Mon 16th Nov: Liria Pristine for Patrick Wolf

So last night was the crescendo of 2009 for Patrick Wolf who held a spectacular spectacle at London's Palladium.  A full band & string section, choir, guest vocalist Florence Welsch, guest spoken word from Gwendoling Christie, guest electronics from Alec Empire and a few outfit changes for good measure.  But the piece d'resitance was for the last track when Patrick was unveiled rotating on a mirror ball platform wearing this insanely lush shoulder/breast plate that shone and shimmered crystal strobes all across the auditorium.  Ironically I couldn't snap this magic moment as my memory card was full from previously taking this picture of the article backstage.  I think that it was shipped to Patrick by Liria from Brasil and here is also the skull piece made by Orla Savage.  Needless to say, Patrick's closet is always a bevvy of treats to dig thru.............not to mention the glitter makeup case c/o Nathalie Castro..........
Ada Zanditon and I were commissioned to customize some t-shirts for the merchandise at this concert.  I was finishing them until the last moment (as usual) so I didn't get any photos BUT when I left the venue I met one of the purchasers who looked fab wearing an Accident & Emergency kite I have asked Jake Downs to send me a photo this space.........

Helloooo, glad I found your blog! =)

I bought one of the bi-plane style black and white shirts and I'm totally in love with it! I always loved the original piece so to have own this is amazing! It was such an impulse buy but I couldn't resist it, I definitely don't own anything else like it!

I keep putting it on then hanging it up and admiring it =) I can take a few pics if you like?

Can't wait to see the A+E shirt too.

Hope you enjoyed the gig as much as I did (I did almost faint I loved it so much!)

HI Thomas,

Oh thats great news!

I made the propellor as a brooch so you can wear that whenever you want ..........on whatever you want........

Definately take a photo if you can, that would be amazing! Thankyou!

Yes, it was an excellent concert, Patrick was really pleased so he'll be doubly chuffed that the audience were too.
