We are super excited to have Ken Done collaborating with us on The Colour Chameleon project! The Social Studio are huge fans of Ken Done’s work. Uniquely Australian, we love the colour, vibrancy and prolific nature of his designs. It’s still such a thrill, probably even more these days, to stumble across a flicker of Done fabric in an op shop… didn’t we all have at least one Ken Done doona or bag or Tshirt or placemat?!
The last time Ken Done was involed with The Social Studio was through Jackie Ruddock’s What Ken Be Done? project. Some of you might know that Jackie is currently working on a Sydney project called The Social Outfit based on our enterprise in Melbourne. Jackie invited the Aussie design icon to be part of Colour Chameleon, which will also involve some activities in Sydney in October, stay tuned! When Jackie asked him to be involved, Ken said:
I’ve always admired the aims of the Social Studio and it’s always pleasing when my art can be put to such good use.
Thanks Ken, what a guy!
There’s a lot of buzz and excitment in the studio around his Colour Chameleon design, we can’t wait to show it to you… so come along on Septemeber 6 12-2pm for our fashion parade and live auction, where 4 lucky bidders will have the chance to own one of the limited edition KD pieces!!
