Window installation at Military Tailors, London. Delighted to announce that my recent portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, assembled from Derbyshire WW1 nametapes will be exhibited at No 6 Sackville Street, London, home to bespoke tailors Meyer & Mortimer. With their historic connections to military uniforms, this unspoilt tailors shop in Mayfair will provide the perfect site-specific environment in which to remember these World War One fallen servicemen.
Since 1790 military wear has played a key historic role in their outfitting business, including the British forces, commanders and Kings. Meyer & Mortimer have held a Royal Warrant from Queen Elizabeth II since 1955, and still tailor uniforms for the Military Knights of Windsor today.
Meyer and Mortimer are thrilled to exhibit this Royal portrait reflecting on Her Majesty’s sixty-four year reign, and long dedication to our Armed Forces.
The Queen’s portrait took 136 hours to create and used 125 grams of dressmaker pins.
Exhibition runs from Saturday 9th April until Wednesday 27th April 2016.
