If you missed our launch event, you really missed a treat. Our exhibitors went all-out, everyone’s stall looked amazing! While we’re busy organising the Autumn Fair, have a browse here for a selection of the outrageously creative designers from the Summer Show.
Jenny Llewellyn brought the summer vibe with her brightly coloured jewellery, perfect for the warm weather we had on the day. Her work is inspired by “the luminous colours, shapes and movement of creatures from the deep sea”, which explains her distinctive style. Combining precious metals with colourful silicone, her pieces are simultaneously unique and wearable – no worrying about scratching up your beatiful jewellery – and no worrying that some-one will have the same piece as you.
Ciara Monahan also came with the tropical colours, and a Flamingo! Who doesn’t love flamingos? Ciara is a London-based womenswear designer who isn’t afraid to play with colour and shape! Another designer who absolutely fits the description of ‘outrageously creative’, you won’t find clothing and accessories quite like this anywhere else. Looking for ostentatious headgear for a special occasion? Look no further than Ciara’s giant parrot headband!
AM Florence’s beautiful vintage style display literally made you feel like you were stepping in to another time. Some of their beautifully crafted luggage has antique Florentine manuscript individually printed onto them, making you feel like you’re about to get on a steam train across Europe in the 19th century. Each of their pieces has different pieces of script printed onto them, each piece is unique – you’re definitely not going to confuse your luggage on the airport conveyer belt!
Did you have a chance to take a closer look at Sarah Michelle’s artwork? She paints iconic figures, then embellishes her paintings with intricate stitchwork, the results giving her work a very multi-dimensional feel. Tattooing black and white illustrations of famous icons with embroidery means that although from a distance her work looks great, when you come in a little bit closer her pictures are that much more fascinating! Take a look at her blog where she discusses her artistic process to get an insight into her work.
