Graham and Green are one of our most exuberant web design clients, best known for their fashionable designer furniture and stunning collection of home accessories. Yesterday they launched their Stag Sixteen charity auction to raise money for the homeless charity Centrepoint. The charity supports young people living on the street, putting a roof over their heads and helping them create a better future for themselves.
The Stag Sixteen charity project involved the help of some of the most exciting and artistic designers in the fashion industry. Each of the artists were given a White Resin Stag Head, which is an iconic piece in its own right, to customise in their own individual ways. Some of the designers chose classic gold designs such as jewellery expert Erin Morris and footwear designer Manolo Blahnik, whereas Choccy Woccy Doo Dah, the skilled cake sculptures, created an edible replica of the white stag head, as a special 17th edition to the collection.
Each of the unique hand-customised designs have been put up on the Graham and Green website for people to bid on, and already a number of bids have been placed. Two of the artists decided to stick closely to the charity’s theme, relating their designs to the street and homes. Gavin Luker is known for creating art with a deeper meaning. His stag head design features a spiralling golden street, which is being supported by the stag’s antlers, representing Centrepoint’s values. Stephen Webster, who is one of Britain’s top jewellery designers, designed a dark fairy-tale style tree house to attach to the stag head, this representing the different environments found in a city. Fashion designer Emma Cook and handbag designer Lulu Guiness, both took a more feminine approach to their customisations. Emma added pink glitter and ribbons to her stag head and Lulu fixated red lips to her stags mouth. Luxury accessories designer, Charlotte Olympia and Daniella Helayel, the designer behind the brand Issa, both created contemporary designs, perfect for the most fashionable of homes.
