Fashion: Kirsty Stevens, Charcot
Do the designs pictured on these pages make you think of impossibly delicate and intricately beautiful moths? They’re actually inspired by MRI scans of the lesions multiple sclerosis (MS) has caused in Kirsty Stevens’ brain, taken in the lead-up to her diagnosis in 2007. She incorporates the designs into jewellery, scarves, cushion covers and framed prints to raise awareness about MS and has been picked as the first V&A Dundee Design Champion. Inspirational designers creating quality work and helping to enhance people’s lives, or champions of the power of design to improve the world, will be announced weekly until the museum opens in 2018.
