Fashion Illustrated: Helen Bullock for Anthropologie

Luxury high street retailer Anthropologie has commissioned the talents of Central Saint Martins’ graduate, Helen Bullock, to lend her illustrative creativity to a new collection of dresses. Previously showing her designs at Vauxhall Fashion Scout at London Fashion Week, the illustrator now turns her hand to luxe street style. The launch of h by helen bullock next month sees the London-based artist apply her signature playful and bold prints and colours to the exclusive series of dresses, available at Anthropologie in the UK and US. Blending art with fashion as Frieze Week and the Multiplied exhibition take over the cultural sphere at this end of the season, Bullock’s original art works are hand painted or stenciled onto the fabric. This technique, as opposed to screen printing a repeated pattern, echoes the unique expression and freedom of movement endowed by the cut and drape of the fabric.
