Ellesse 50th Anniversary Party, ROME

To celebrate the iconic sportswear brand 50th anniversary I was whisked off to Rome, pins and hammer in hand to thread a wall with the " make it beautiful, make it better" statement. Below are some photos of me working on the piece at the amazing venue, Chiostro del Bramante, Rome.

And some pics of the final piece.....simplier than some of my previous work but just as effective I think....bold blocky fun

Other highlights were Claire Levision Gendler's amazing paper tennis dress based on Eva Lai's lovely illustration, both pictured below....

Ellesse also snagged Si Scott to develop this illustration to launch their Call For Entries design competition to mark their 50th Anniversary, pictured below
Did I mention the amazing venue? Spot the celebrity...Pat Cash is in there....

Uber cool music by Crazy P...

Some strike a pose shots from the night....

and after a few cocktails....

And finally, a big big thank you to my boyfriend Zac who I took with me as a treat for his birthday and ended up roping him in to helping me. Heres a pretty picture he took from the plane....

  2. Hello Debbie.

    I am Euphemia here, writing to you from a publishing firm based in Singapore. We would like to feature your work in our up coming publication. Do contact me at, so that we can further discuss it.

    I tried emailing you previously, but not sure if it got to you, so had to try this method of contacting you, sorry about that.

    Hope to hear from you soon and have a great week ahead!
