Fans of my clothing can now find selected pieces at “The Most Marvellous Place to Shop” which is on the Kettering Road opposite the Jaguar garage here in Sunny Northampton. If you haven’t visited yet, get yourselves down there. The place is packed to the rafters with lovely retro clothing, vintage crockery and collectables and most of all a fantastic cafe called Nannas Kitchen where Kaw and Emma serve great food.
After attending the Renegade Handmade market a few weeks back and getting such a good reception on my clothing, I didn’t hesitate when asked if I wanted a space in the Most Marvellous. I also sell vintage trims, buttons and vintage fabric. I get some vintage fabric which just isn’t big enough to make clothing, so I decided to cut it into decent size pieces and sell it in packs. Subsequently you can get a pack of at least 8 various sized vintage fabrics- a word of caution here Vintage is 25 years or more (my fabric is exactly that) you can get lots of projects from this fabric for just £15!
Every single item of clothing is unique and I only buy fabric in limited amounts mostly due to the fact that it’s vintage and in short supply. Everything is hand finished by myself and usually features some type of hand stitching or embellishments on it.
This is only a sneaky peek at a couple of the pieces as we did a photoshoot last week. I was lucky enough to be selected for a bursary to help small businesses from UCN with which Im expanding the website. It will contain lots more classes, information on education packages for schools, photos of my clothing and collaborative work. All of which is very exciting.
