At Woven Store we believe in clothing as form of self-expression and therefore ones very own form of art.

Following our shoot for the Spring edit, we asked our friend and very talented Worthing-based illustration artist Pip Bishop to interpret some of our campaign shots.

Pip’s loose watercolour style gives a soft, light and free feel to our shoots, we feel furthering the mood we had attempted to create in directing and putting together our shoot at the beautiful beach house. Taking away the models features and shifting a gentle focus onto the clothing emphasises our chosen colour palettes. We couldn’t be more grateful to feature some of Pip’s beautiful work, empowering the women who inspire us is always a joy.

Pip was originally a textiles artist, doing an MA at the Royal College of Art after studying woven textiles at Middlesex University. She moved into illustration as she began doing surface design and costume drawing, which inspired her to veer off from solely digital methods.

“My process is to do lots of drawing to loosen up, from these I’ll choose elements I like and then go on to develop them. Finally, I might make some digital adjustments to colours and backgrounds.

For this project the natural aesthetic is something I’ve focused on I love the harmonious colour palette of the collection.

A collaboration like this is definitely my happy place!”
