Playful Style from one we made earlier

It has been said and I agree that the way we dress has a real impact on our attitude and mind-set. You get up in the morning, choose one of your favourite outfits, then put your face on and feel like you can deal anything the day wants to throw your way. But what’s missing? Jewellery of course. Those lovely accessories that you enjoy picking out (they always fit!) and they just add a little something to your look. I came across one we made earlier last year at Design Junction during the London Design Festival 2015 and not only did the branding make me smile but the collection of contemporary accessories called out to me.

All Change: Tassels on the Tube at LDF14

A true talent and one of the last working trimming weavers in England, Jessica Light produces exquisite, innovative and contemporary passementerie of exceptional quality. Everything is handmade to order in her East London workshop using methods dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries. During this year’s London Design Festival Light launched two new collections, Temple Gardens and Southside, which feature materials like monofilament, brass, straw, and banana fibre. Her work continues to surprise and with her unusual chosen venue of Old Street Tube Station the new collections stood on their own for all to see. As ever the collections didn’t disappoint, with her colour palette also offering something new and inspiring. I especially love the purple and talking with Jessica we agreed the colour just goes with anything! The fascinating world of trims and tassels is gaining momentum once again and with exciting large-scale projects on the horizon, Jessica Light is leading the way and inspiring new and exciting uses of these exceptional makes. www.jessicalight.co.uk
