Hi everyone. Today I’d like to showcase some work by the very talented Emma Hawman of Emma Frances Designs.
Emma recently graduated from the University of Leeds with a degree in Textile Design.
Emma has a lovely, hand-drawn style.
Emma is full of creativity – she loves to draw, design, sew, make and also loves photography. She works hard and you can check out more of her work on her blog here and Facebook page here. With such strong collections like these, it won’t be long until Emma is snapped up by some design studio! I wish her the best of luck. ♡
Hi everyone. Do you want to see how brilliant designer Orla Kiely spends her week? Check out the link below. Orla Kiely has really put surface pattern on the map. She’s probably the most well-known surface pattern designer out there. I am also very proud of the fact that she’s from Ireland. She was born in Dublin and now lives in London.
Surface Pattern is practically unknown in Ireland. Yes we’ve had great designers in other fields – Philip Treacy, Paul Costelloe, Lainey Keogh and Sybil Connolly in fashion design, Eileen Grey in architecture and furniture design, but mention surface pattern design to people here; even designers and you get a blank look. I usually site Orla Kiely as an example, just to clarify! Anyway check out her diary here. ♡
P.S. Her book Pattern is a must-have for any designer. I bought the smaller version of the book. It’s so cute and dinky but filled with excellent advice and designer insights. ♡
Hi everyone. Today I’d like to showcase some beautiful work from the lovely Andria of Florrie Grace Studio.
Andria is originally from North Wales but now lives in Cheshire with her cat Gracie!
She set up her own studio after working in-house for over 7 years.
She loves designing anything for baby, young kids and teens.
Check out her lovely blog here ♡
