Known for her stark and poetic creations, London-based furniture and interiors designer Faye Toogood turns her eye to makeup, collaborating with artist Ayami Nishimura for the concept collection for MAKE and is for sale on WeSeeBeauty.com
The 35-year-old designer has recently catapulted to the international stage with her vast range of work, from fashion runways (enhancing the set for Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen and Kenzo) to pop-up retail experiences like Opening Ceremony London, to fine art.
Faye’s furniture and art objects are handmade with her signature of “honesty to the rawness and irregularity of the chosen material.” Her objects are grouped together in her trademark numbered “Assemblages” that transform the three-dimensional space in which they are exhibited.
Academically trained in the theory and practice of art, Faye collides a pure respect for the past and a self-expressed vulnerability of nature for the New Medieval Collection for MAKE. The artist has a fascination with the unexpected destructive qualities of nature, the current flux of our society, and the way natural materials can convey a narrative of hope in color and textures.
