2011 has been the most exciting year yet for our brand as we have grown, developed and really established ourself at the heart of the creative Bermondsey Street scene.
At the start of the year we expanded our Studio Range of ready-to-wear garments to offer beautifully made, limited edition clothes in luxurious fabrics. We also continue to develop and hone the range of bespoke styles we offer which now also include tailoring essentials, a personal favourite being our best selling fitted Blazer.
In Spring we launched our series of Design Talks, starting with the chic designer Roland Klein and followed by the brilliant Helen Storey - both an inspiration to anyone with an eye for good design and a love of fashion. These talks are a way to gain an insight into the brave, creative minds of such accomplished designers and also a chance to hear first hand how such extraordinary design paths can be achieved. We are super excited about the next talk in January with iconic fashion journalist Felicity Green...
For LFW we held our first ever catwalk show in the studio in collaboration with our neighbours at London Glassblowing which was a huge success and a really unique opportunity to showcase not only our bespoke garments but also the intricate glass pieces that were handmade to go alongside them. We had so much fun and a great response to the collection so shall keep you posted on our next plans for LFW in February 2012….
In the autumn we organised our first ‘al fresco’ photo-shoot with HMKM, taking our beautiful collection for S/S’12 onto Bermondsey Street to capture our luxurious garments against the backdrop of the creative community we call home. The images here are a sneak peek with some behind the scenes shots of the day itself and we shall post the finished article in the new year…
As we write there are just too many other great experiences and events to mention, from our collaborations with Maggie Semple to the Bermondsey Street Festival and celebrating our first year in the studio, but it truly has been the best year yet for us and we are so excited about the year to come.
Thank you as ever to all our lovely clients and to everyone who has helped make 2011 such a fantastic year for us. Have a wonderful festive break and an even better New Year!← Back to the Journal
