Patchwork Harmony

On returning from New Designers, a received an email from Caroline Taylor who is the owner of the company Patchwork Harmony. Patchwork Harmony is an online boutique which is full of lovely little vintage bits and bobs for the home.

Her current blog is all about the theme of 'Nostaligic Britain' showcasing work from New Designers including my work and 3 other designers, which you can imagine that I am chuffed to bits that she liked my work at ND and it's also nice to see different designer's takes on the nostaligic idea.

New Designers Week 1

What a week it was...

An amazing opportunity for new graduates to display their work in the Design Business Centre, Islington, Old London Town for the public, industry and fellow design graduates to have a wee gander at. Duncan of Jordanstone Textiles unfortunatly was no big winner in any of the prizes, but as my Gran always said 'it's not the winning, it's the taking part that counts' too right!

Our stand seemed to get a lot of positive interest and a number of the girls where approached (myself included) by a number of different possible clients. Very exciting!

It was a great way to finish university life, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in London and will miss the rest of the Textiles girlies... roll on the reunions.

I stupidly didn't have a camera to capture ND but luckily my fellow peers did so I shall post some piccies of our stand in due course.
