Notes

Silk Tie, embroidery signed on the back, in original plexi presentation box.

Cultural Ties was an exciting and unique fusion of art and fashion. This imaginative global project was the brain child of London art dealer Kapil Jariwala: the brief was for seventy-seven leading artists from around the world to design neck tie mock-ups which were translated into textile format by Como, Italy's Ratti silk factory. A limited edition, only 300 of each tie, were produced and sold worldwide via selected retail outlets, gallery shops and the internet. The project, in association with UNICEF, was supported by Gavin Aldred, owner of the Westzonegalleryspace, where the artwork for the project was exhibited, and Westzone Publishing Ltd.
