CURRENT OBSESSIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS:


I’ve always been obsessed with car boot sales, vintage and flea markets.
COW the vintage shop in Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester has a boutique feel and some great finds. I love their cheap rail section at the back of the store.


Love the fashion website www.notjustalabel.com

They discover and support pioneering contemporary designers, they also have an online shop… (I keep meaning to apply to join them) :-$


I’m also a big fan of Donatella Sassi, a mosaic artist based in Italy.

We actually met through EBay! I was selling a load of broken vintage jewellery and she messaged me asking why am I selling such beautiful pieces, I explained the items were too big for me to make into jewellery and sent her my website link. From this a mutual admiration of each other’s art was born!





AFTER HOURS:

Currently working on my new collection focusing on bolder more elaborate body jewellery, then maybe I’ll dabble in a bit of fashion! Keep your eyes on www.fatzk.com


I’m also currently working on a project with the owner of The Dolls House NQ, a new Fashion Agency and Independent Boutique opening soon on Tib Street.
