The Margate Drawers make the big screen!

A few months ago I dropped off a load of work at Ealing Studios to be used in the new 'St. Trinians' film - 'The legend of Fritton's gold'. It may never even make it into shot, but the set director told me that my work is being used to style the room of the 'new girl' (Sarah Harding from Girls Aloud) and so I'm thinking there is a good chance it will get a peek on screen! The movie comes out on the 18th december, so fingers crossed and tickets booked...... A great little feature!

Nice post from who saw me at Tent London a couple of weeks ago. That show news to you? I have a LOT of updating to do on here, ha ha. Great mention. :D

New Designers - One Year On

I was one of the lucky few picked for the 'One Year On' part of this years New Designers showcase at the BDC in Islington. It was just brilliant to be back there as last years show where everything started is still pretty fresh in my mind (would you believe).

The area was curated by Thorsten Van Elten and his team and I had a busy but fun week. I had a chance to exhibit with some of the loveliest new designers like Abigail Borg (new shop opened online) and Deb Elsaesser (beautiful recycled wood furniture), the And Then boys as well as James Plant and James Moss (and they design together! - brilliant), and loads more!

Momiji couture contest I have been told off a number of times now for not updating the blog. The truth is I have been doing so many interesting things that I have had no time to write about them! I'm not going to apologise, I'm just going to get on with it! :D

Back before we did New Designers, Matt and I had the great opportunity of teaming up with Momiji again for their 'Couture Doll' contest. - Always great fun.

This is a great competition and as this post is long overdue I must hurry along anyone who wants to enter as the brief is pretty cool and its only on until 30th October! (naughty zoe)

Momiji are inviting entries to design a fabric doll for their brand using an alternative, or even crafty, method. You can stitch one, weave one, applique one, knit one (purl one), embroider one, knot one, crochet one..... you see where I'm going with this. The winner gets their creation seen in the Royal/T gallery in Los Angeles as well as being featured in Selvedge magazine. The judging panel is pretty star studded as well, reason enough to get out the knitting needles.

Matt and I were enrolled to design the flyer and also to decorate the stand for the competition at New Designers Week 1. We had a FAB time printing and painting onto lots of scraps of cardboard, and spent the day on the show build up installing lots of fabric inspired circles!
