March2010 Ongoing Project

Embroidered Knitwear Collaboration with Knitwear Desginer and Stylist Samantha Barker.

The pieces will be available March/April 2010, but to the right are some examples of Samantha's current Knitwear collection 'Geek Chic' which was sourced from Nottinghamshire Lace Knitwear specialists
