Tiger Grass Coat

Ackroyd & Harvey  

The Grass Coat was first displayed on the catwalk at the London Hippodrome as part of the Lynx Anti-Fur campaign, re-grown for an environmental fashion show in Dublin, 1995, and most recently displayed at Sotheby's, London, as part of the Outmoded Decorative Arts exhibition, 2001.

Working on the principle of denying light to areas of growing grass, the tiger striped effect was achieved. Where the light fell, the grass produced chlorophyll, where it remained in shade it stayed a bright yellow colour.
