Many moons ago when I was 18 or 19 my college mate got me a Saturday job at Sanderson’s fabric showroom in Berners Street. I loved the spaciousness and light of the double height 1950’s showroom but didn’t care one jot for the old fashioned 19th century designer William Morris fabrics that we sold.
When we think of Petra Barkhof we see colour. A prominent figure in kids fashion land with an extensive career in art direction and fashion styling, Petra is a walking mood board in herself. Sporting a white bob with blue tips and invariably dressed in something bright and bold, statement jewellery and pearls of laughter, you notice. She makes you curious.
Feeling guilty that we haven’t posted a blog for while. So much going on! Is that a good enough excuse…? We are in the midst of selling season with 3 trade shows under the belt. Taking us in-out-in-out of the studio. It’s a challenging time for wellbeing this trade show lark.
and SMASHING TIMES
Bit embarrassing really but we’ve lost the phone. We have an idea where it could be, and I’ll get to that in a little while. Being only weeks in from launching the collection online it’s not really the best situation is it? What must you think of us?
Welcome to the first of our Meet & Greet posts. Here we will introduce you to a smorgasbord of deliciously delightful people who we find inspiring. We’ll share what we’ve gleaned about their worlds and hopefully whet your appetite to return to Musings and meet someone new.
We are now so close to our launch – we will actually have a product to sell online in days. Blimey, that took some time…. Seriously it’s a long game fashion, at the best of times, but setting up a new business and weaving together all the elements just takes time. We started work on this brand back in Spring 2018 and here we are, finally.
