Eleanor Callaghan's Profile

About

Designer and maker Eleanor Callaghan selects vintage gems from antique fairs, charity shops and flea markets to create a palette of intense colours and patterns to work with in her Brighton Studio.

Dig For Victory has an affinity with the stage, as Eleanor began by making dresses for herself to perform in with the ukulele tweecore band The Bobby McGee's, and has since gone on to make outfits for eccentric songstress and fellow brightonian Bat For Lashes. From bold structural designs to theatrical harlequin costumes, Dig For Victory is made for women and girls who still love to play dress-up!
