The first time, and only time, I've been to London was roughly 14 years ago. Just typing that makes me feel old! And it was such an awesome experience, as you would expect of visiting such a cosmopolitan and renowned city. I long to visit again, however in the meantime I'll make do with having my jewelry there for a short visit.
As I had blogged about in my previous post about the Erebus Pop Up Shop, Eilisain would be making it's debut. And I'm so grateful for the opportunity. You see, for handmade products such as mine and many others in the slow fashion and small business' the chance to expose your brand to a wider audience takes work as well as the collaboration with individuals that want to champion your brand. Thus, having someone like Chris Tull Williams, Managing Director of Erebus create an event to promote the handmade movement and appreciation for well made clothing and accessories is a huge benefit to my business as well as the slow fashion community.
Here are some fantastic photos from the successful event. I'm loving the gorgeous pieces by Clon8 and futuristic leather pieces by Aumorfia. These are not just clothing and accessories but objects of art and ones to be cherished.
As you can imagine, with online shops it's trickier for customers to get a sense of the feel and made of clothing and accessories, and for that reason pop up shops are a wonderful opportunity to try them out and put them on.
I hope you enjoy these photos and take a moment to look through all the other talented and amazing designers over at Erebus.
