National Portrait Gallery // Taylor Wessing Prize

The Taylor Wessing portrait exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery is one we always look forward to - with striking images throughout and the annual debate over the winning picture this years is no exception.

There is a great portrait of Peter Crouch by Spencer Murphy and an intimate image called the embrace by Jonathan May - pictured below.

The portrait that took top prize was by Jooney Woodward with Harriet and Gentleman Jack - a young teenage girl with her pet guinea pig in a competition. The rest of the series and others can be seen on Jooney's website

We had a personal interest in Jasper Clarke's portrait of Wen which came fourth place as he is a friend of the brand - so we want to say a big congratulations to him. (Also pictured below)

It only costs £2.00 to go and see the exhibition and is on from the 10th November - 12th February 2012

From our earliest days, we’ve adopted a business model that incorporates environmental and social responsibility at every step. Each season, we increase the proportion of ecological, organic and recycled fabrics and will continue to do so until they represent the entirety of our collections. We also ring-fence a proportion of our revenue to put towards planting trees with the Woodland Trust.
