ForeverYoung is back!
And is all about up-cycled, unique, one offs and limited-edition collections (and collabs!) made to order, with love in London and made to last forever...
Its just beginning on Etsy while I redevelop its website (and branding) and I'd love your support, reviews & shares while it gets back on its feet again as ForeverYoung Emporium.....
I began customising clothes at eleven years old and by thirteen I'm was on to my second sewing machine, I was off collecting vintage from secondhand shops, upcycling, and adding a unique customised fit or detailing .... a #textiletouch which led me to acquire my Diploma & Degree in Fashion Design and Textiles.
At 20 I did my first design work placement with Betty Jackson and the following year moved to London for my first job with English Eccentrics…My love of luxury and handmade began.
Many years later after living and working as a designer in Hong Kong and consultant to British luxury brands, I then knew I wanted to have a brand and collection of my own, so I launched ForeverYoung at London Fashion Week 2004.
However, after the birth of my first daughter Eva and second daughter Honor, it all became too much to juggle and I made the brand dormant, staying consulting with unique small British brands. I eventually later established Bespoke Textiles with Kate, supplying brands from Bills to Buckingham Palace.
As if that wasn't enough I wrote my book The Textile Touch to really talk about this journey and hone how you Design, Develop & Deliver unique collections.
