ANIMAL MAKER BILLIE ACHILLEOS
With the monogrammed menagerie......
The brain behind the animals used in all Louis Vuitton
show-windows worldwide is 25year old Billie Achilleos
who claims to be a professional 'Itsa Bitsa'
she makes things-puppets-figures-animals-
out of other things......
She was 8years old, entertaining herself with characters
made out of bin bags and leggings in the back of her
mother's hair salon, she has a degree in sculpture and
and technology and an armoury of specialised skills.
for the launch of the new Louis Vuitton monogram
The Armadillo is to highlight the soft yet durable
quality of the leather.
The Chameleon displays a variety of colour.
The Grasshopper is constructed from products
with zips and poppers that make satisfying noises
like that of a gifted insect.
Finally the Beaver who's functionality chops wood,
builds dams and provides clever ways of organising
one's life in mens bags and wallets.......
