Here is a link to a collaborative creative project I’m working on with Sarah Bell, New Zealand fashion stylist – @spoiltvictoriannchild.
Becoming Blodeuwedd – Collaborative project between Mel Parks and Sarah Bell.
It’s inspired by Sarah’s work as well as Blodeuwedd, a woman made of flowers from the medieval Welsh tales of the Mabinogion.
In a nutshell, Blodeuwedd was created from flowers to be the wife of Lleu. He went away hunting one day and she fell in love with another man, Gronw. They plotted to kill Lleu, the husband. Then, the magician, who’d created her, Gwydion, didn’t like what she’d done, so he turned her into an owl as punishment.
