MEET OUR COVER ARTIST
A life lived both in the classically chic streets of London and the vivacious sands of the Gold Coast has granted Designer and Fashion Artist Cara Gray an elegant and feminine approach to her iconic pieces. As a passionate Designer and Artist, Cara’s aesthetic transcends passing fashion trends and is inspired by the timeless feminine style embodied by iconic figures such as Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Munroe and Coco Chanel.
Influenced by the elegance and beauty of classic fashion photography, her artworks are created with contemporary and traditional mediums such as paint, ink and digital illustration. This helps to create timeless art pieces that emulate a modern chic appeal infused with old world charm.
‘The Woman of Paris’ was Cara’s first art collection, and channeled a glamorous summer spent in the streets of Paris, in hope that the old-world mystique and iconic beauty of the subject would inspire women to become the leading ladies in their own lives. This debut collection was very well received by women across the globe, who used the pieces to bring a dash of Parisian style into their home and lifestyle. In the wake of the success of her first collection, Cara Gray is launching her follow up fashion art collection entitled Red/Rot/Rouge in November 2012. Each limited edition print is signed and numbered to retain the integrity of each piece.
A nod to the iconic style of the 1960’s, Red/Rot/Rouge embodies the empowered feminine beauty that rose from the ashes of a World War that helped to shape a cultural decade of immense character and inspiration. This six piece collection pays tribute to the style of this decade by depicting six women from the period with a striking red undertone unifying each artwork.
With fashion and art shaping her lifestyle, Cara can create private commissions for both commercial and private clients, and can tailor her elegant pieces to suit your living spaces and unique requirements.
Cara is also the editor of UptownTwirl.com, a fashion website dedicated to fashion news, trends and style, of which many of her artworks accompany the articles.
