Harper’s Bazaar - Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide
It was an absolute thrill to have the Lipstick, Literature, Liberalism tote bag included in this practically perfect issue!
Penguin Random House - Kate Atkinson
A custom bag commissioned by Penguin Random House to celebrate the publication of Kate Atkinson’s new novel, Transcription.
‘Think of it as an adventure, Perry had said right at the beginning of all this. And it had seemed like one. A bit of a lark, she had thought. A Girl's Own adventure.’
I was honoured to be one of just a few businesses asked by Instagram to join their Kindness Week campaign during September 2017. A goody bag of kindness was sent to thirty Instagram influencers to spread some love during Kindness Week which culminated in a world wide Instameet.
Kindness is always in fashion and I regularly receive orders for these with £15 from each donated to Oasis Cardiff, an organisation in my home city that helps refugees and asylum seekers integrate into our community.
As a long time fan of Percy & Reed products I was thrilled to work with them on their campaign. The brief: a cheeky phrase in the colours of their product and with their distinctive ampersand. I was happy to deliver and super proud of the final design and our "Percy & Reed loves Lisa Macario" labels.
As a press gift to send alongside their Radiant Red "Rock it Like a Redhead" products, John Frieda requested a simple sweatshirt with a tiny rocket. I presented them with a couple of designs and they opted for this machine embroidered "Rock it" with a cute hand embroidered Rocket!
To coincide with the Design Museum's March - August 2018 exhibition "Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008-2018" I was approached to design a sweatshirt to be sold in the museum shop. We settled on a couple of designs using threads inspired by the colours of a Shepard Fairey illustration.
Thank you the Design Museum, this was a dream come true!
Sali Hughes and Sarcoma UK
After receiving a deluge of love for the slogan requested by my friend Sali Hughes, she suggested that a donation from each be made to Sarcoma UK in memory of her friend Carey Lander. I was very happy to oblige and have made 300+ sweatshirts since. That's over a mile of DMC thread!
Now available in all the colours and either hand or machine embroidered with £15/£10 donated from each to Sarcoma UK.
For Leah Harper's piece "Statement dressing in slogan T-shirts: 'Even a small protest feels good'" I was asked to quickly make a "we are all immigrants" sweatshirt for delivery the next day. I was thrilled this machine embroidered white thread on red sweatshirt was included in their photoshoot.
The Telegraph Stella Magazine
Excited to spot Kate Bussmann in her "feminist killjoy" in Stella Magazine’s bumper Fashion Issue.
In "From carefree singleton to mum: how I embarked on the wardrobe spring clean of a lifetime" Kate explained how she recruited some help to overhaul a wardrobe that was no longer working for her. I'm pleased the Lisa Macario sweatshirt made the cut!
