minus' Profile

About

I am fashion designer with a love for shapes. I like to use simple shapes and lines to create clean, down-to-earth designs. I started making bags when I couldn't find the style I wanted anywhere. I decided the only way I could get what I want was to make it myself.

Since then, I have been making bags and home accessories for family and friends. Like me, they could not get products to fit their needs, and knowing of my fashion design background asked me if I could help them out.

It is a fantastic idea!

No matter what products I am creating. I make and remake prototypes until I achieve the best proportion and details. I cut and stitch all my items…

No matter what products I am creating. I make and remake prototypes until I achieve the best proportion and details. I cut and stitch all my items one by one, and it is such a wonderful process to see the stitching and shape forming together beautifully. I love using quality natural materials that are both nice to the touch yet hard wearing. And they are sourced entirely from local shops and British and Italian manufacturers.

So why did I call my lifestyle range Minus? Well, I've always been a believer of less is more, so by stripping away the unnecessary, you are left with a more versatile item that can be used for more occasions and for a longer time. Hence, Minus Lifestyle began.

Thanks for taking the time to read about what I do. I hope you have time to take a look. Remember...add more to your life with Minus.
