About the artwork

Between 1975 and 1979, Linda Jackson worked with David McDiarmid to create bespoke garments for Flamingo Park, the fashion house she founded with her long-time collaborator Jenny Kee. Using a bold, calligraphic line, McDiarmid hand-painted fabrics for Jackson, including those used to craft this 1978 ensemble. Embracing traditionally masculine tailoring traditions, Jackson constructed a genderless garment consisting of a high-collared long-sleeved shirt, waistcoat and reversible coat, and a pair of loose-fitting, tapering trousers. She also drew on design conventions associated with Chinese samfu and Mao jackets, which are distinguished by the minimal cutting and darting involved in their production.
