NEWS: SILK FACE MASKS
I'm pleased to say that the large collection of silk off-cuts that I had spare has been used successfully up in the production of non-medical masks, over £600 of which has been donated to the NHS.
Due to the current global demand and requirement for masks, I have created a small collection, which is also exclusive to Selfridges, of non-medical adjustable silk masks. The shape is intended to be suitable for multiple face shapes and sizes, due to two adjustable elastic straps. Masks are made and printed in England, and 5% of net profits will be donated to the NHS in support of COVID-19 relief efforts.
I've bought three of your masks from Selfridges - the Antique Floral, the British Butterfly and the Black Tropical Butterfly - plus three of your upcycled masks. They are beautiful and much lighter and cooler to wear than other masks.
Beautiful masks! You are an integral part of people's lives, making this unpleasant item pleasing to wear. It's great that it's adjustable, plus the silk is such a pure fabric!
I'm so pleased with my mask! The design is gorgeous and the soft silk makes it so much lighter and more breathable than the cheaper masks I have tried.
NEWS: DRAWING TUTORIALS
Welcome to my new series of drawing tutorials which I will be hosting online every other Tuesday at 6:30pm via Zoom, in collaboration with my co-working office & members club, Kindred.
Doing a workshop with someone so successful in her field can make someone feel really intimidated but Emily was incredibly humble and kind, making sure that everyone is on the same page and taking time to give everyone feedback for their design! Not only have I learned something new, but I also made a friend! Can’t wait for the next tutorial! Well done Kindred for collaborating with the best!

I participated in a lovely, supportive workshop on how to draw a hummingbird with one of my favourite artists, Emily Carter. During an hour or so, we all managed to draw our hummingbirds with thorough support of Emily. Collective work was truly inspiring and encouraging. To be frank, I always had an aversion to such events. It was important to overcome this fear and I'm absolutely happy I did. Thank you, Emily, again for this opportunity.

New interview with my members club and co-working office, London Kindred.
We discussed my career so far, design process, inspiration, upcoming collections and my favourite aspects of living in West London.
Due to our recent partnership with a British phone case manufacturer, we are able to offer premium cases for up to 650 types of phone. We currently have 18 designs to choose from, however you can actually choose any design from our website. If you have a particular request which is not available via our shop, please email us directly, we'd love to hear from you.
Even though all of our products are ethically produced in the UK, we still feel the need to become more responsible in terms of sustainability.
Therefore, we have replaced all of our plastic, bubble wrap and coated packaging with recyclable cardboard boxes and cardboard envelopes. We are also reducing the amount of paper that we include in your orders.
Our luxury packaging can also be recycled, although we hope that you will treasure your scarf box, and reuse it for other items in future.
The fashion industry is becoming notoriously wasteful, unsustainable and unethical, and even though our new packaging options are perhaps less aesthetically pleasing, we believe that setting a responsible example has to take priority.
So if you purchase one of our items, we'd be grateful if you would help us by responsibly recycling or reusing our packaging.
