Occasionally, peeps email me about their fashion businesses and it really captures my imagination. Powder Butterfly is one such concern and I've been meaning to write about it for aaages.
The reason this one jumped out at me, as well as having beee-youtiful designs, is prolly that the designer, Corinne, is based in The Shed - Creative Studios, an initiative run by Gateshead Council, but that was originally championed by Wayne Hemingway; how I love that Wayne.
So, Corinne is all about wearable art, and as well as working on individual pieces, she produces bespoke corporate gift sets, the kind of business-savvy idea more fashionistas need to embrace. Corinne promotes her business via her blog (smart) where you can read about her inspiration, projects and collections, including the just-launched Silver Clay Collection, stunning designs made using "precious metal clay", small particles of metal held together with an organic binder and water. Check out my fave pieces...
