Illustrator And Film-Maker Quentin Jones On Working With Victoria Beckham

26 November 2012 by

You may be more familiar with Quentin Jones' work than her name. The Cambridge Philosophy graduate-turned illustrator is responsible for an adorable fashion film released in February this year to showcase VB's Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection. Featuring cat masks, cloud motifs and un-zipping dresses, it was the perfect complement to the designer's whimsical and feminine pieces. Now Quentin has spoken to The Telegraph about what it was like collaborating with a Spice Girl.

The film-maker revealed ‘She was really interesting to meet - much funnier than I knew she was meant to be, and quick-witted. We had quite a lot of creative freedom and the film is better for it. When people ask for too many changes they cramp the process.’ It would appear the feeling is mutual, as at the time the video was first unveiled Victoria herself said of working with Quentin: ‘She’s cool, has an interesting vision and her style fits so perfectly with the Victoria line!’

With such a positive endorsement from 2011's British Fashion Awards Designer Brand of the year winner we're excited to see what Quentin has up her sleeve next. The film-maker, who cites David Shrigley, Saul Steinberg and Quentin Blake as her favourite illustrators, has just worked on the Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection video featuring Karlie Kloss as Jack in the Box and it's packed full of the same quirky imagery as her previous creations.
