I am participating in the “Created at Cockpit” Concession from January to April 2012 at the Southbank Shop on Festival Terrace opposite The Royal Festival Hall. For sale are lambswool and merino wool accessories and my new range of beautiful silk scarves, which feature blocks of vibrant colour and stripes.
The Southbank Shop is a very exciting store filled with innovative, creative and artistic products by designers and artists. My accessories will only be available at the Southbank Shop until April 16th, but can be purchased anytime on my webshop, www.elisabethhamlyn.com.
A series of photographs in which designer, photographer, model and makeup artist come together in collaboration.
My innovative garments featured in a collaborative project in which model Verity experimented and interacted with the pieces to create bold statement images. Makeup artist Maddy Fearn was inspired by bold coloured light highlighting the face at different angles and used strong fuchsia creme pigment to create an exciting effect. The photographer Karen Hancock used lighting to create shadows enhancing the sculptural effect of the garments. The result is both imaginative and intriguing.

I will be exhibiting at Origin 2010, the London Craft Fair hosted at Old Spitalfields Market on the 23rd-29th September 2010.
Origin 2010 will be presented by Tent London for the Crafts Council as a major presence during the London Design Festival and presents the very best of craft talent and quality.
It is always interesting when someone else styles my work because sometimes they see it from a different perspective to me. I was inspired by the photos in which the models wore skin-tight body suits underneath my twisted strip dresses because it emphases the open and structural nature of the pieces. It has given me many ideas with layering for my next collection.
