 My immediate thought when I saw the Burberry painted trenches…was – I may pass out! It was true sartorial love, but baby I don’t have that kinda Benjamin. 

My second thought was…I think I can recreate this with thrift.  

First step – find a vintage or second hand coat that would work as a worthy canvas. My local Salvation Army store on 46th St really delivered – I found an authentic Aquascutum trench for $20!

Second step – text my amazing artist friend Roxanne, ask her to bring her paints and come customise it with me.

All done by hand, we flowed [as Rox so beautifully put it], making her come to life together and this is the result.
