FREE PICTURE:  Rural Mural inspires fashion extravaganza, 24/05/2016: SPRING INTO FASHION: Art and fashion came together to show off fabulous fabrics ahead of the Spring Fling open studios weekend on 28th-30th May (2016).   One of three new Spring Fling Rural Murals (SFRMs) in Dumfries and Galloway was chosen to showcase hand-made silk kimono-style jackets, wrap-round skirts and coats by international textile designer Morag Macpherson. She and Italian international street artist Tellas, were also the creators of the mural, at Meiklewood Farm, Ringford, near Castle Douglas. Pictured is Katarina Marie Kositzki in a designer wrap-round silk patterned skirt. Thousands of visitors will see the murals as they tour the 94 Spring Fling visual arts festival studios, including Morag’s. The fashion shoot project was led by photographer Kim Ayres, a regular Spring Fling participant. The models were Jessica Lee and Katarina Marie Kositzki, with hair and makeup by Basement 20, Dumfries.
