Annabel’s final show at St. Martins was inspired by Mata Hari. Everything in the collection is hand-drawn and hand-dyed using old techniques. She sponged the dye through stencils to create mottled effects and used batik wax dots to hold back colour. She looked at the hand-tinted photographs of Mata Hari for colour reference and the 1931 film starring Greta Garbo.
