The first installment of the “Deja vu” series is a favorite of mine. Parisville marked a directional change for me as an artist into bigger, more colorful designs that had a larger story telling quality. I have breathed new life into Parisville using a dreamy color palette of bright pastels and rich citrus colors. The design of Parisville was based on the story of Marie Antoinette, in all of its unnecessary decadence, as seen through the lens of what a young girl might think is “fancy”. It was only natural to pull the new color palette from a buffet of ice cream colors and dessert treats. This collection is like frosting, its sweet, decadent and entirely indulgent. I have left the designs largely intact in an effort to preserve the original qualities of the prints that made them popular in recent years. I made one notable change to the main print. The Cameo print had 3 different hair styles when it was first released and the new print focuses on only the most coveted and classic sailing ship hairstyle that best represents the narrative.
One yard of each of the eight prints for a total of eight yards of fabric.
