Claire Redford is my oldest friend and we’ve been through just about every life event together.
She is an incredibly talented artist and I still vividly remember the days back in third form art sitting next to her in absolute awe of what she could create. Fast forward to today and I am so honoured to have her still by my side as the WT Resident Artist.
Over the past four seasons Claire has created amazing works to accompany our collections. With every brushstroke and line drawn, she inspires us and draws us into her world.
We have collaborated with Claire to create prints of a selection of her works which are available to purchase here. 5% each print sale is donated to Gumboot Friday to support the important work they do.
Most recently she has created three stunning paintings inspired by our latest collection Grazie Mille. To learn more about these check out our conversation with her here.
We know you’ll love all of her works just as much as we do, check out her previous WT series by clicking on the paintings below.

There are three body measurement points that you need to know to ensure a great fit – bust, waist, and hips.
When taking your body measurements, wear the undergarments you normally wear for the most accurate results. Use a flexible tape measure, or a piece of string and ruler, and hold it around each body point so it is comfortably snug. If the tape is cutting into your flesh, it is too tight.
To ensure an accurate measurement around your body, keep the measuring tape as level as possible from front to back. We recommend measuring yourself in front of a mirror so you can check this from a side view. If you can, get a friend to help you to ensure the most accurate measurements.
Bust: Wrap the measuring tape around your back and where the tape meets across the fullest point of your bust is your bust measurement.
Waist: Wrap the measuring tape around your natural waist, the slimmest part of your torso, pulling the ends to the front. Where they meet is your waist measurement.
Hips: Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your bottom – this is usually low down towards your thighs. As with your bust and waist measurements, where the tape meets is your hip measurement.
Length: To measure the length of individual garments against your body it is best to measure down the centre of your back. To do this, start the measuring tape at either the base of your neck for dresses and tops, or at your waist for skirts. Measure down your body to the measurement listed in the garment description. This will show you where the garment comes to on you. When you are measuring for length, remember to make sure you are standing completely upright – it is best to have someone help you with this. Alternatively, compare the measurement with the length of a garment you already have.
