Shop Small

19 January 2018

Shopping 'Small' is a strong ethos for me. As an independent designer / maker i understand the importance of knowledge behind products that i buy. Responsible buying and sustainable fashion is of high importance to me.
The current shifting economic climate has placed pressure upon Artists & Makers. This financial uncertainty coupled with the stresses of managing commitments, can cast a strong impact upon passion , focus and creativity.
Shop Small is a campaign here to celebrate those who support handmade goods and whom responsibly source objects/products alongside those who create them.
For one week only i curated a shop 'Shop Small' that took on a concept of minimalist approach.It aimed to provide high end exceptional talent all within one space. Artists & makers were selected from UK & Overseas. this last December was the 3rd time i had popped up for Shop Small in my own studio space at Little Joy Studios. The campaigns were not one of personal profits but the encourage others to shop mindfully , and to show appreciation to the artist & makers, a very small percentage was taken just as means to support the running of the campaign.I am happy to say these campaigns have been hugely successful for the exhibitors. The shops have grown considerably , bringing customers from far and wide to visit this little isle & also this time i featured an online store that had massive success for those who couldn't make it in person.
Curating spaces has always been a passion for me, whether it be back as a VM in retail (Habitat, Topshop) whilst i studied my jewellery degree, to then being hired by galleries & institutions to set up exhibitions , shops & windows displays. To be able to create my own shop, with all the people i admire showcasing all the pieces & products i adore was a complete pleasure & one i aim to achieve again however the venue shall be moving to an alternative location as we shall be needing more space for my next idea !!
To all who came & supported 'Shop Small' I thank you from the bottom of my heart & i hope you will continue to treasure all your beautiful purchases .
