Julie Verhoeven is a leading fashion illustrator, artist, designer and filmmaker. Her formal training was in fashion, and she has collaborated internationally with labels including Louis Vuitton, Versace, H&M, Mulberry, MAC and Melissa, as well as musicians Primal Scream, Graham Coxon and Fisherspooner. In 2002 she launched her fashion label Gibo by Julie Verhoeven. She has exhibited internationally since 2002, with solo shows in London, The Netherlands, Brussels and Cologne.
We asked Julie to create a new piece of artwork, inspired by our collections, especially for Spring Festival. Her installation includes references to our wildlife sounds, fashion magazines, books and film collections.
"The British Library is an inexhaustible, treasure trove of visuals delights and curious sounds, which cannot be surpassed. It is a rich and varied reference mecca for any creative worth their salt." - Julie Verhoeven
Julie will talk about how she came up with the piece and about her career to date. There will also be a chance to ask questions.
