A New Chapter

As you've probably noticed my blog has been quiet for quite some time, so much has happened since my last post in June so here's a quick update...

In the past couple of months, I've graduated from my Creative Practice degree (with a 1st!), upped sticks from my student flat in Heaton and moved into F6.Studios with some lovely creatives in the centre of Newcastle. I've taken part in both Newcastle Fashion Week and The Late Shows exhibition as well as having my accessories going live on local online boutique 'Shabby Sheep' (!accessories-/c24we).

I've also enrolled onto another PNE enterprise business course in November (a friendly and inspiring lot based on Pink Lane who make writing a business plan a pleasure rather than a chore), and I'm contributing towards the F6.Studios blog ( where there's always something exciting around the corner! I've recently received branded stickers from Moo to make the packaging that little bit more special, and I'm hoping it's not long before I get my own website up and running.

Next on the list is a collaboration with local corset designer Kelly Lamb ( and photographer Michael McGuire (, and a chat with the wonderfully talented founder of Tallulah Love, Michelle Taylor (!
