If you collect designer vinyl or hand-made plush toys, if you're interested in fashion, or if you're just into contemporary character design and urban art generally, chances are you will have seen or heard something about the creations of Felt Mistress. A former couture dress maker, Louise has brought her years of experience to the world of felt character design. She's been commissioned to produce shop window displays for Oxford Street's prestigious department store Selfridges as well as stitching hundreds of fabulous felt characters into life and exhibiting them in galleries around the world.
Louise mainly works collaboratively with her partner - illustrator and toy designer Jonathan Edwards (The Guardian, MAD magazine, NME) - as well as with some of the most interesting urban artists working today, such as Pete Fowler and Jon Burgerman.
Louise and Jonathan will be in conversation with the book's editor and designer, Woodrow Phoenix, at this special event to celebrate the publication of Creature Couture.
Plus, attendees who purchase Louise's book on the night will have the opportunity to receive a quirky monster caricature from Jonathan.*
*Portraits will be done on a first come first served basis, and we cannot guarantee that all customers who purchase the book will receive a portrait on the night.
