HU: What can you tell us about the experience of working on this project with such a major and influential name in the fashion industry?

MA: In three words...Made in Heaven. I’ve admired Marc Jacobs for years.

HU: How did the collaboration come to be?

MA: They got in touch on social media. I think they saw me on Instagram.

HU: And how did it feel to see your artwork in this new medium?

MA: It was a complete thrill because they were not just using my images, I threw them the ball and they ran with it. To see my images used so carefully with respect, love and integrity.. Well, there’s just a warm fuzzy feeling.

HU: That sounds ideal. Were you involved in the selection of works that were used in the collection and were you consulted on the design of the final pieces?


MA: They’d seen some images they liked & wanted to use…then I showed them some other images & they selected a few more. I was not consulted on the design of the final pieces though I had to O.K. things and they were fine about slightly altering a couple of ideas, it was very much a conversation, they’re very gracious people, it was a pleasant experience.

HU: What did you learn from the experience and would you be interested in more collaborative fashion projects in the future?


MA: I learnt that there are the good guys and the bad guys and they are the good guys... I am not interested in any other fashion projects, we’re doing some more things together...

HU: So we can expect to see more Magda Archer x Marc Jacobs in the future?


MA: Yes, I think you can.


HU: Amazing. Lastly, do you have a favourite piece form the collection?


MA: I genuinely like it all, it’s beautiful.
