I've always been enamoured with folk costume. The colours, layers, textures, patterns. The timeless elegance.
For a couple of seasons now I've been wanting to make a range of clothing for the store with Northern European folk influences, but for many reasons including time, I've never gotten round to it.
Also I didn't know if anyone would get it! Well, I've started making some one-off pieces that are loosely inspired...whether my customers 'get it' or not. Coming (slowly) this autumn/winter season.
I'll give you a sneak peek soon...
