Selfridges has scoured the UK to find the most exciting new names from the world of fashion and art and each designer has then been given the chance to currate one of the store’s prestigious windows. Fashionbite wrote about it previously, see the post ‘Selfridges hands over Oxford Street windows to young designers.’
This week, Little Glass Clementine revealed its exclusive collection for Selfridges, which looks fab. I saw the label at Estethica last month, the British Fashion Council’s ethical arm, and really liked it. I took these pics and ended up chatting to the designer’s lovely (and v.proud) Mum.
It’s fantastic to see that Selfridges has recognised the talent of new designer Clementine James. Clementine’s designs intricately weave together precious and discarded objects. Antique jewellery, treasure, wood, bones, junk, old gems, watches, and even bath plugs! The ethos for her designs is to recycle and remake jewellery in the hope of retelling a story.
At Selfridges on Saturday 19th February at 2pm, Clementine will also be running a workshop and Q & A session on the art of making recycled jewellery. People will be encouraged to make their own ‘Little Glass Clementine’ style necklaces.
