Yesterday by chance I came across a weird but wonderful dress on ebay, and although not something I would wear, the prints on it really caught my eye. After further investigation into the designer Per Spook, he seems to be as interesting as the prints suggest.
“Per Spook came to Paris in the late 1950s after graduating from the Oslo School of Fine Arts. For him, Paris had been a lifelong ambition, the place to go for anyone wanting to work in the fashion industry. After studying at L’École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture in Paris, he embarked on a long career as an apprentice and freelance designer. Experience with revered houses like Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Dior, and Louis Féraud gave him a taste for haute couture and the specialized fashion that created a sensation when he opened his own house at the age of 38 in 1977.” (via fashionencyclopedia.com)
