IF YOU LIKE ME THEN WHY DON'T YOU GO AHEAD AND TELL ME...

I'd like to begin by sharing two good platforms for showcasing work that I have discovered... This would appeal to anyone creating homemade crafts/customising vintage clothing etc. and anyone who is an artist/textile maker...basically you creative types. The first is at the Urban Outfitter's website. They are currently looking for submissions of work by up and coming artist's to display on their website. I feel that Urban Outfitters is quite a cool brand and far from harvesting your talents to make money it feels much more like they do just want to give artists the attention they deserve. See details on the Urban Outfitters site or click this link:

The second 'platform' has been created by Rokit (super cool vintage store)  and is called the 'Designer's Guild'. They are looking for independent designers to sell a selection of their stock on Rokit's online store... 
It seems like a win win situation...the brand gets a boost from cool individual collections and you get a chance to sell your bits to a wider audience, (the Rokit team also photograph your designs for you and put them on the swish website). So far there have been some beautiful bits and pieces including indian inspired head-dresses and kitschy trashy jewellery (of the best kind).

I will shortly be posting my top picks of Rokit's Designer Guild range...
Muchos Love.
