Phoebe Rees spent some time at the local designers pop-up shop yesterday and discovered some hidden talent in Norwich.
Yesterday I visited the Norwich Fashion Week pop-up shop in The Library Restaurant. As a lover of one-of-a-kind vintage fashion I was excited about the prospect of meeting (and shopping with) emerging local designers.
Fresh off the NFW catwalk, Ethika designers Marian Williams and Johanne Couldrey were buzzing from seeing their handmade designs embraced by models and fashionsitas alike! Inspired by a love of nature, their clothes are eco-friendly and unique. I immediately had Mother’s Day present ideas circulating in my head!
Equally as animated was jewellery designer Julie Westmacott of Tamarind Designs whose hand blown glass and liquorice allsort pieces looked good enough to eat. For a special occasion look no further than her range of semi-precious stone jewellery. Every piece is finished with a ‘made in Norwich’ tag.
With so many delightful charms and trinkets I couldn’t decide want to buy at the Eclectic Eccentricity stall. Inspired by vintage knick-knacks and a love of the unique, each piece has a story to tell. My favourite pieces are the brass feather bracelet, which you can wear with anything, and the harmonica necklace which is sure to brighten up your day as you can actually play a tune on it!
All in all it was a great place to find some unique and locally sourced finds.
