In the midst of the madness leading up to my best friend's wedding last week I was so sad to get a text from another friend telling me that Corinne Day had died. Late last year my boyfriend & I purchased one of the photographs that she auctioned off to raise money for her operation. It's terribly sad that it was unsuccessful, but I am honoured to have one of her images hanging on my wall.
I trained as a photographer before I decided to become a knitwear designer and Day was a huge influence to me. She was definitely in my mind when I made the choice to do a degree in the subject. She made an incredible impact on the fashion and art worlds and will be sorely missed.
