Last year I produced some illustrations that I then printed onto t-shirts. One in particular was quite popular, so I've used this for the Dolly Apples Shopper. Hopefully, I will get some of the other designs printed onto the bags as well.
Thank you to everyone who bought from Dolly Apples at the weekend. We had a fab time on the stall and the atmosphere was great. We were also really pleased to see people buying our environment-friendly re-usable shopper bags. We don't use plastic bags at Dolly Apples and we're encouraging people to purchase the shopper (which includes one of my illustrations). Please email me for more details.
We got a lot of questions about the website and where people can buy Dolly Apples. At the moment we're still working on the site, but you can visit my stall at Greenwich Market most Saturdays. You will also find Dolly Apples in Red Door, Greenwich. Alternatively, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After surviving a four year fashion course, I started to design and make my own clothes and accessories in 2004. The last two years have been quite busy and aside from being in a book on global fashion, I was included in two exhibitions in Vienna and Dusseldorf. So what's next? It's early days and all my money is being poured into sourcing new and vintage fabrics. I started selling my clothes this year and was really pleased with the response - so I've included more items for the Autumn/Winter collection.
This blog is going to be my visual diary and I want to include anything that catches my eye. Please feel free to add your comments!
Girls who love Dolly Apples love to stand out from a crowd. The trend is quirky English Eccentric; vintage lace overlay floral cottons, and sharp tailoring is adorned with feminine appliqués. But this blog is not just about what we are doing at Dolly Apples, it is about what has influenced us and what we are loving right now, from vintage shops and markets to other textile and fashion designers
