Packaging Matters.

For me packaging can turn a lovely product into a beautiful product. It can shout out 'I've been made with care and love right down to the last detail.' I have been known to purchase an item simply because of the way it is branded and presented, keeping the packaging in a keepsake box. All this being said, it has made packaging my items a bit of a nightmare as I am so passionate and picky about its presentation! I also didn't want to distract from the product itself. Here are some examples of some simple yet inspirational packaging I found whilst compiling research for my new collection. 

Happy Packing!

Spotted at TopDrawer 2012

I have a stand as part of the Spotted area at this years Top Drawer trade show in London. I will be joining 12 other new exhibitors who have all been hand picked by the curator Charlotte Abrahams. Spotted gives independent designers makers a chance to exhibit at a large trade show and introduce their collections to an international market. 

Im really looking forward to meeting the other designers and launching my new products at a trade level however with still so much left to prepare and organise Im feeling very overwhelmed, lets just say this is going to be one big learning curve. My check list is in full swing, products are all confirmed, price list and order forms are ready to print. Having said that I still lots of things to tick off in the next following weeks, maybe a mini break down too, but having done a handful of fairs and shows before Im sure you will all agree with me that we I will never feel ready...!

Please come and say Hello! My stand is SP10 in the Spotted area.
