I am pale skinned - I always have been. Basically I lack melanin. No big deal in rainy England but since moving to central Italy my colour has been the butt of many a joke! So finally, following a recent day at the beach - and the umpteenth comment about hiding under a rock - I was inspired to create this collection. Someone actually likened me to a Vampire but a new breed that can go in the sun without setting on fire!
The designs are photos I’ve taken in various old buildings around Rome and beyond such as medieval churches, castles and ancient external walls. Old crumbling images that caught my eye. I thought the fading ship frieze made a suitable reference to Dracula's journey from Transylvania to Whitby, North England.
My logo is also an integral part of the designs.
At the moment there are four variations.
