Hello hello I hope you all had a nice weekend. Here in London, it continues to be the hottest I haven't seen or felt in years. My poor mother, who came from Gran Canaria hoping to scape the islands Summer has been suffering the London heat! I will, in fact have to stop working from my studio, as I am melting as I write this…and will join mum in the living room to cut some fabrics and do some packing.
I know that it doesn't make sense to talk about Christmas under this sunny blessed weather, but I wanted to tell you about an event I went last week. I was invited to come along to Liberty launch of the AW 2013 collections under the name of 'A Cracking Liberty Christmas' and I couldn't have said no to this opportunity as some of my cushions were there together with the rest of the amazing products they will have in stock in the coming months.
I must confess that when they got in touch about the English Romantic collection, back in January I almost had a heart attack. Liberty is my favourite shop in London and the hope that one day I will see my little brand selling in there have been in my head and heart for a long time. If you are and independent designer, running the show mainly on your own, you will know how difficult it is to negotiate with the big guys and even do wholesale all together. So today I am thrilled to have achieved this and finally see one of my dreams come true.
Thanks to Simon and the Liberty team for putting together such a nice event. I was very glad to see lots of independent designer's products alongside the dazzling and beautiful Xmas decorations, together with the most gorgeous fashion accessories and gifts. I can't wait to see the window's displays and the actual Christmas section, and of course my cushions, which I hope will do well!.
