Lorna May Wadsworth's '100 Pictures 100 Pounds' collection makes the East end Londoner's artwork all the more available to her followers. The oil paintings are firmly rooted in fashionable motifs, seen in her portraits of Karl Lagerfeld and powder blue Lanvin totes.

Wadsworth has tapped into a broader consumer market with her £100 pound price tag. These pieces are available online exclusively, allowing her to avoid standard gallery costs and framing fees.

The 100 Pictures 100 Pounds series also breaks with the designer's activist past. Her images of Margaret Thatcher and the 2003 Labour Conference Party are mostly products of her former days as she has since relieved herself of her "...political palette." She instead shifts her gaze towards iconic representations of Hermes and Tom Ford.
