Founder of folk and nido
Coming from a fashion design background,
I have always had an interest in everything design.
I've spent the last 10 years working in high end
couture and ready-to-wear production which led me to dabble into my own clothing line a few years back.
A combination of bad timing and for the first time in my life a feeling that fashion just didn't seem a fit for me, led me back to my basics,
and got me soul searching for what it was I was so passionate about early on.
After taking a year off to become a mum, I got back in touch and into all the things I once loved that drew me to fashion in the first place.
My love for design lies in fabric, texture, colour, creating, using my hands and illustration.
I started drawing again, which developed into freelancing in art/graphic design, and a gift card collection.
My obsession with magazines slowly migrated from fashion to the home and then somewhat organically I designed a homewares product range,
a concept for the store, and folk and nido came about.
I hope to bring you a consistently beautiful and creative website that features my love for design and those of other artisans with similar stories to myself,
in a personal and collaborative shopping experience and I hope you love it! x
