Cupcake Cardigans embraces the desire to own a very special one-off design; an individual creation that only you own!
I have been making and creating since I was 6 years old. That's when my mum taught me to sew on her 1960s Universal sewing machine; from which sparks would fly out of the motor every time the needle stuck in the fabric. It was a dangerous hobby to have for a child. Thankfully I never got hurt. The sewing bug stayed with me until adulthood and I completed my B.A. Hons in Fashion Design Practice, but was jaded with the fashion industry. It was never about mass production for me, nor did I embrace making one-off pieces for the very wealthy. So I, like many others, needed to find a 'real job' to support my love of making for pleasure; to support my quest for individuality and to express myself in a tangible way.
Now I make allsorts, but currently my collection…
