Rock + Paper + Scissors
by Eric Loubser, Nicky Levenberg and Ella Buter
For Tinsel Gallery’s first big show of the year, we’re bringing together 3 very talented designers who are highly regarded in their respective fields: Nicky Levenberg of Aureum Design is a young artist and textile designer, fresh from studying at Central St Martins college in London, who is making waves in the local textile industry; Ella Buter of Superella is an icon of the local fashion industry, with many great shows under her belt and a lovely little shop of her own; Eric Loubser is one of our best young contemporary jewellers, making unconventional but highly desirable pieces. Working with their different tools and mediums, Eric (Rock), Nicky (Paper) and Ella (Scissors) will each produce their own collections for the show as well as collaborating on some truly unique pieces. The colour palette and direction of the designs for the show take their cue from some of Nicky’s beautiful geometric paintings.
