Fashion and art combine

09 December 2008


We're always up for new reasons to shop - so we're loving the Art Council's Own Art scheme. Essentially, it will lend us the money to buy a fabulous original piece from more than 250 galleries across the country - we then pay back the loan in 10 monthly instalments that are interest free  We found out all about it when we shot the gorgeous home of Blur's Alex James - see this week's issue - but it's also available for fashion and jewellery such as this fabulous silk, net and organza headpiece by fashion and knitwear designer Juliana Sissons who has worked for Alexander McQueen amongst others. It's yours for £70 from the Hove Museum and Art Gallery. Want to know more? Find out here.
