Greetings Designer Friends

We hope you're all well, healthy, happy and sane in these crazy times...

Our industry is in unprecedented and uncharted waters, turbulent seas and waves crash around us BUT we must keep drawing, creating and being inspired.

We're always gathering new stories to inspire our collections. Just before the lockdown I was lucky enough to see the Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk exhibition at the V&A. A glorious feast for the eyes.

We want to bring inspiration and joy to these dark times so we're sending you a weekly newsletter with images I have lovingly created for you all.

There will always be a place for fashion but I am sure it will be more thoughtful, slower and considered. In the meantime we're sending virtual positivity, sparkle and smiles.

Should you wish to view the collections, please contact to arrange a Skype/Zoom/Facetime appointment. We are offering free shipping in the UK and internationally and remain open for commission and freelance projects.

As a small business we cannot thank you enough for all your loyalty and support and want you to know that we're all here for each other.

Keep smiling and look after each other!
