Collaboration with Tonya Hawkes

Veronika Shiliaeva

Ad Campaign F\W2014

Last June was very special for me, because I met absolutely amazing woman -  the founder of Tonya Hawkes brand. We did not know anything about each other. The thing, which connected us was Art. Tonya have noticed my works and invited me to Bologna to collaborate for her brand.

To make art is one thing, to make wearable art is another one. Together, we tried to combine these two different spheres. And here is the result of one of our works. I was invited to create sculptures for Tonya's first Fall 2014 Collection Ad Campaign in Milan.

Tonya Hawkes, Bradley Seymour, Vittorio Canisi, Gabriele Giussani and me made it real.

Check out our final video. 

The trunks she makes are absolutely unique, each one has it's own history behind, each bag is a result of a lot of work, but first of all it is the result of Tonya's dream, her passion to the beauty and fashion. 

Tonya knows how to combine art and fashion together in the best way, and I am very proud to be a part of Tonya's story.

Now a limited edition of these trunks is available in our Gallery1.61. Check out to see more.

Just from the beginning I dreamed to represent how close art and fashion are today. That is how Gallery1.61 was inspired.

Several times per year me and my team travel around and choose some unique brands which could be represented in our showroom. At the same time I work and communicate a lot with art sphere and look for possible collaborations for our gallery. We are in a constant search for unique and inspiring and I am happy to share it with you.
