Neon Rebellion is the love child of Leah and Manisha, with their backgrounds in fashion and graphic design respectively they joined forces to create this contemporary design-led fashion brand. Their bold geometric designs made from high gloss, pearlescent and mirrored acrylic in sumptuously dark and eye-poppingly bright colours create strong statement pieces which are playful yet effortlessly cool.
Inspired by their shared obsession for bold graphic shapes, fractals, symmetry, geometry and patterns within art and nature they started a series of collaborative design and art works which would eventually become the first collection.
Ella creates unique silk artworks and wall hangings, all dyed and screen printed by hand in London. Alongside these printed textile pieces she also produces drawings and paintings under the same collection.
Her current work is inspired by the Japanese philosophy of ‘wabi sabi’, which celebrates the beauty of transience and imperfection. She focuses on imbuing a sense of age and wear through chemical processes that break down the silks into delicate, ethereal shapes. She then layers the silks with hand drawn imagery through screen printing. Her mark making has a meditative energy and is derived from studying organic forms including seeds and wood grain.
Her imagery is drawn in sketchbooks, and then exposed onto screen for printing. The silks are distressed through chemical processes, which erode and discolour the fibres. They are then carefully dyed and screen printed in layers. All colours are developed from scratch using procions and pigments.

Upcycling; making useful and attractive new products from items commonly perceived to be rubbish, is now a big trend. Amelia Parker’s truly unique designs take this idea a step further by adding London and history into the mix.
The range features jewellery, accessories and print all made using fragments of clay smoking pipes carefully selected from the foreshores of the River Thames in London. Many of these fragments date back to the 1600s. They are used exactly as found, eroded and coloured by time and tide, and have not been trimmed to size, altered, or enhanced in any way.
The jewellery is made using specifically-chosen fragments which are graded by size, colour and shape to create attractive arrangements. Closely-matched ‘pairs’ become earrings or feature within symmetrical designs, and interesting single fragments with unusual shapes and patinations are selected for centre-pieces, unisex chokers or single drop pendants. Cufflinks and keyrings are also available.
Hand-made leather wallets and holders for smart phones, cards and spectacles, are created from old clothing and remnants and, as per the jewellery, every item is totally unique. Each one features a ‘trademark’ Amelia Parker clay pipe fragment toggle attached to a split ring so that keys or charms can be added.
Greeting cards feature Clay Pipe Pete and Smokey Joe on old maps of London (available as larger prints on request). More images for the printed range are in the pipeline(!) and these include London landmarks, animals and a clay pipe alphabet for personalised items.
SINTAMANI is a boutique jewellery brand founded by designer/studio jeweller Priya. Coming from a heritage where jewellery is a treasured artefact, the concept behind the brand is to create a modern version of traditional Indian jewellery. The brand name is derived from a Sanskrit word; a magical jewel which fulfils one’s desires, and is jewellery inspired by the bygone era of the Mughal Empire and its imperial grandeur.
Each piece of SINTAMANI jewellery is designed to give the appearance of a decorative motif, the Lotus flower, symbolic as being associated with beauty and prosperity. The jewellery is created using 3D printing and hand finished in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. All pieces are crafted using sterling silver and a 24ct gold vermeil, with some set with one of the Navaratna gemstones; diamond, sapphire, ruby or pearl.
Returning with a warm welcome to Intrigue Emporium is Remy Dubibé
An artist and a self-proclaimed a hoarder of souvenirs and memories, fascinated by the sensitivity and elegance from the eclectic chaos of sounds and images, feelings and dreams found in the routine of every day life and features the sentimentality of these memories into his work. Today fragility is characteristic of his works, creating “ephemeral” pieces, working with thin surfaces and layers, playing with translucidity, giving a sense of tension both in space and time trying to reveal an intimate and enigmatic ambiance.
Remy Dubibé will feature limited edition pieces of jewellery and ceramic homeware at Intrigue Emporium’s Summer Show.
