Meeting Willa Gebbie

I met Willa and discovered her work a few years ago during an event organised by Links of London which I had told you about here. I had been struck by her beautiful watercolour live fashion illustrations at the time and, when I had to commission an event invitation for work, I got in touch with her again and decided it would be a great opportunity to tell you guys more about her story!
At the time, she was finalising the drawings for a style guide made by Ella Ratliff for La Parisienne event that is currently happening at Sofitel London Saint James until the 17th of November. You can get a glimpse of some of her sketches for the guide on the pictures below. Continue Reading

Indeed, their creations are made by local women in Kenya, the goal being to empower them and allow them to make a decent living for themselves and their families. Continue Reading

Meeting Helmut Paris

A few months ago, I went to see Clarisse, the founder of Wanted Gina whom I had previously told you about here. It happens that Camille, the designer of the jewellery brand Helmut Paris, is sharing the same workshop as her, so I took this opportunity to ask her a few questions before she disappeared on holiday 🙂 These two get on really well and have even made a beautiful jewel sweatshirt in collaboration for Clarisse Spring-Summer collection!

When I had just arrived in London five years ago, I came across a lovely loungewear brand on a market: Luva Huva. What I like about what Joanna, the designer and founder, is doing is that her creations are comfortable yet elegant and that the materials are super soft. On top of that, I really appreciate her sustainable and environmentally-friendy approach. Continue Reading

Today we are meeting a new designer, Lucile, the designer and founder of Les Bijoux de Lu.

Following this meeting, I am organising a giveaway for you to win a creation! Check-out the end of this post for more information on the how to take part in it.  Continue Reading
