It’s been an incredibly hectic time really since Spring Fair International in February. With repeat orders after the show and some big orders going out, it has meant a lot of packing and boxing up. However, as the designer (and general dogs body) I have been working away on lots of new designs for release at Harrogate Home & Gift Show, which is fast approaching.

‘Picnic’ new to Handbags & Gladrags range.

I have added to the existing ranges, and created a new range called ‘Elegance’ of which you can have a sneeky look below. The range is inspired by gorgeously fashionable women and I hope is a little bit reminiscent of the wonderful Rene Gruau who’s illustrations are a huge inspiration.

I have also been busy with a secret project which I will hope to reveal soon. It’s been under wraps for a while and as the products don’t launch until next Spring I don’t want to give too much away.

The new catalogue is also in its final stages, so if you would like a trade copy then please send me your details, and I’ll pop you down on the list.

The Fay’s Studio website has also been nominated for Website of the Month by Mr Site (my web hosts), so fingers crossed for an achievement there.

I will also be unveiling lots of new Valentine’s Day cards at Harrogate, so come along and visit me in Hall F stand F72.
