About

Gemima London loves Liberty.

Growing up in Wales in the 1970's with a creative Mum gave me a grounding in sewing, crafting and making in general. Always more comfortable in the Art room at school it was clear that Design was going to be my "thing" from an early age.
By the early 80's I was making clothes out of anything I could find, with variable results! but it was a great grounding - you learn so much from experimenting before you get constricted by more formal education.
The formal education came with 6 glorious years at Art College, first a Foundation Course at Howard Gardens in Cardiff, then a Btec in Fashion at Newport College of Art and finally (much to my Dads relief!) a Degree in Fashion at Manchester School of Art in the late 80's. Manchester was in full swing and many an evening was spent at the Hacienda and other local venues.
I graduated somehow with a First Class Degree, was awarded the Merchant Taylors Award for Fashion at the very first "New Designers Exhibition" at the business Design Centre in London, I think it's now called Student Fashion Week or similar.
My First Creative venture was my own Fashion Label, I sold to independent retailers in the Uk, Europe and the US, it was a small business, we showed at London Fashion Week and had some sucess, but in 1997 I decided to move to London and get some experience working for other companies. There followed over a decade of designing for some of the biggest names in the high street, nationally and globally. It was pressurised and stressful at times but it had its perks, especially the travel and shopping trips.
By the mid noughties I was falling out of love with the industry that had played a huge part in my life. Independence beckoned, I worked as a freelancer and made private commission bespoke pieces.
Eventually in 2010 Gemima came into being in the form of "Gemima Craft Kits" now "Gemima London".
