Object history note

These illustrations are from the third collection produced by Kate Clarkson label, which was based around a nautical theme. Clarkson initially worked in miniature, and selected sketches were then enlarged to a more workable size by photocopying them. These images were developed into a final design, with the addition of colour, fabric swatches and various notes. This garment was not part of Clarkson's final selection and so was not included in the Spring/Summer 1997 Collection.
