Instagram Competition Joy!

Gemma CuttsComment

Last week I ran my first ever Instagram competition to win a limited edition leopard pattern leather make up bag (the first of it's kind!) to celebrate the full unpacking of my brand new studio in Southsea, Portsmouth! What an amazing experience! Over 700 entries, can you believe it, with the lucky winner announced last Friday! I bought the beautiful leather on a whim, with no clear idea what I wanted to do with it, I just loved the colour. The leather is vegetable tanned so has the most beautiful gradation of colour, each piece cut is slightly different.  Using lilac and chartreuse thread seemed the best way to clash and celebrate this amazing heat we have been having! I have enough leather left to make one more make up bag (and potentially a little coin purse - watch this space) - it doesn't get more limited edition than that!

Thank you so much to everyone that took part, your response was just incredible! I will definitely be running another one soon...

Sample Sale Alert!

I have added a selection of pieces to my first ever SALE! I am no longer able to get hold of the slightly paler denim I used to work with, so the remaining stock (in pristine condition) in this colour denim has now been reduced to BARGAINOUS prices and is available in the shop now.  Once it's gone, it's gone, so get in quick while you can!
