This year is flying bye and as our tans start to fade we can look towards my favourite seasons! And to kick off autumn I have five things that I am super excited about!
Autumn is Finally Here!
It's officially September tomorrow which means I can finally live my autumn/winter fantasy! Despite being named after the brightest month of they year I am absolutely an autumn child and I cannot wait to step out of my all black wardrobe and start introducing some of that moss green and burnt orange that we know and love ... but also still lots of black!
New seasons mean new projects!
I am pushing myself and my dressmaking limits t bring you some amazing new silhouettes and designs in the run up to the party season (which I for one am extremely excited about) such as some fabulous culotte trousers which will be swish swishing their way into your life soon ... Katy Perry if you're reading this, invest in some one off pieces now! You can see a peek of my new designs over on my Instagram page. Remember to hit that follow button as I have a competition lined up very soon!
Supermodels of the world!
Along with a new collection, there obviously needs to be a new photo's to go alongside! I have a wee photoshoot up my sleeve working with some fantastic creative who I've had the pleasure of meeting through my career so look out for that one! I'll be using it to compile a catalogue of completely unique made to order evening-wear which I'll be distributing at upcoming events an through my online store! Prices will include an online consultation pour moi so we can get your measurements right and choose from my extensive collection of prints! Speaking of fashion ...
I am delighted and honoured to be taking part in the exhibition and catwalk entitled Mindframe, organised by the Scottish Design Exchange in partnership with Penumbra Scotland's leading mental haelth chairty. During my time at art school I was diagnosed with general anxiety disorder, predominantly in social situations, and it is still a huge part of my personality today. I'm so excited to be able to help this amazing cause with what I love to do! All info about the event can be found here!
Last but very not least!
My next stallholder event where I'll be bringing my full range of sustainable, vegan and ethical products is a brand new event called the Glasgow Independent Market. Organised by the brains behind the Glasgow Vintage and Flea Market at the Barrowland Art and Design Centre! I'm really looking forward to being part of the launch! Get yourself RSVP'd here!
All in all, I am very excited about upcoming new projects and some lovely creative goodness! As always any enquiries you can pop a comment on this post, contact me through a form on my website here or email me!
So August has rolled in and I have no idea where this year has gone! This past wee while I have been very busy creating, selling and getting to meet so many of you.
At my last market stalls a lot of you have asked what to expect from my new collection! I've been really inspired by rock formations lately, as many of you know my previous collections have focused on the crystals themselves and how the lines layer together. This collection will focus on a darker more Autumnal tone of colour which is perfect for the upcoming season! I've recently taken trips to Banchory and Stonehaven which are literally minutes from where I live but have the most amazing and exotic rock growths to photograph and be inspired by. Expect lots of greenery and fluid forms in my new work.
I do love my markets and this month will prove no different, on the 19th of August I'll be at Montrose Makers' Market. Here I'll be displaying and selling my new collection, so if you are around the area then please pop down and visit my stall. The event has listed myself and some other lovely talented companies alongside on their website here so check them out to see what amazing artists I'm exhibiting with!
If you aren't able to make it to the Montrose Makers's Market, don't fret! I'm super excited to finally have my online store up which stocks some of my key pieces. For all any special orders please don't hesitate to drop me an email here!
What a busy and brilliant weekend! As some of you know I was able to set up stall and display some of my collection at two events this past weekend in Aberdeen. It was incredible to see the turn out at both markets and get to chat to you.
I did some questions about orders of pieces I didn't have currently available and yes I can do some bespoke pieces, I do have a core range but I can make customer pieces too! If you are interested in ordering something from my line or want someone even more unique please get in contact with me directly here!
I did get some questions from you about where I source some of my fabrics, so I just wanted to reiterate that all my materials used are ethically and environmentally sustainable. It's part of my ethos as a designer to hand make wearable fashion that's fabulous whilst being healthy for the world too. The rest of the process is pretty top secret so I'll leave you to your own imagination about how I create the way I do. Every piece is unique and hand crafted which is why you all love it so much.
Thank you again to Bridge Street Social Club and The Hippy Market for having me! If you didnt get a chance to visit me there you can still pick up your very own textiles by April pieces in my Etsy shop!
