We are always designing and commissioning new trims to be made and we bring them into our shops from all over the world. We have wonderful specialist suppliers who make up everything from fragile lace for lingerie and collars, glass beaded trims for dresses and lampshades and feathered trim by the metre to grosgrain and velvet ribbon with a difference. Do you remember the Tom Ford glasses advert we posted? It featured VVR double-sided velvet developed specially for Tom Ford – well it is now available to all of you online in 20 colours!! http://bit.ly/z1ubS2 Our Creative Director, Annabel Lewis, travels all over the world searching and briefing artisan craftsmen in Japan, Spain, China and France to name a few of the far flung places she visits. See the gallery below to get some ideas: More follows over the next few days.
