After a lovely busy summer it was back to the studio and my sewing machine to come up with new designs. Named after the road in South West London where we are moving to, the bespoke ‘Penwortham’ Tote, £180, comes in stunning embossed lizard leather with a suede panel on the front and my signature tassel zipped pocket. For all order enquiries please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The most sought after Clutch Bags recently have been the ‘Felicity’ with the clients choosing a unique colour suede lining to ensure their bag is individual. These bespoke Clutch Bags were in high demand for Weddings and summer events as they had to match certain outfits and styles. They cost £100 and a voucher makes a wonderful spoiling present.
From next week the popular Make Up Bags and Wallets will now also come in smart black embossed ostrich – a timeless classic accessory for any handbag. They will be on sale at the Dummer Christmas Fair in Hampshire in October with a free black cotton Flora McKillop London shopper with every purchase.
Dates for all the Christmas Fairs that we and my Home Accessories company, Flossie & Bumble, will be at will be coming out next month so we hope to see some of you then!
With Spring and the Wedding Season now upon us, it’s the perfect time to launch my first collection of Clutch Bags. ‘Thelma’ has been my most popular design and with demand getting higher, I decided to make them available to buy online. Working closely with my workshop in North London, the project has taken some time to get just right.
Made with beige embossed ostrich leather, the colour is classic and goes with any outfit, whilst the choice of leather is smart and stylish. They come with my signature pretty lilac suede lining inside, lust like the Lila Wallet. The large tassel on the front pocket can also be made in another colour if the client wishes.
A photo shoot in the stunning Battersea Park this week will provide some more style shots for my website home page and show case new designs.
The next step is to make them in elegant black embossed ostrich leather which will be great for parties and evening events and to give clients more of a choice when purchasing. Lots to get done!
So finally after over 1 year of hard work and dealing with different work shops and factories all over England, a lovely little place in north London is now making some Wallets, Make Up Bags and Credit Card Holders so I can sell them online.
Lots of people told me I should go abroad as it’s cheaper and easier but I was adament I wanted to support British Manufacturing and it’s Flora McKillop London not Flora McKillop New Delhi!
Each product has a signature lilac suede or lilac striped linen for the lining as a fun twist. I have gone for 3 colours, a smart navy, pretty beige and fun plum, all in embossed ostrich leather.
This is such a big exciting step as it really means I can sell more to my clients and attract some interest from new shoppers.
I can’t thank my friends and family enough for all their supportive and endless advice. These things take time and really hope the new designs are much loved.
The items should be online at the end of the week but have a sneaky peek of the wallets below!
After waiting many months for this, my embossed logo stamp has finally been made. This will be stamped on a piece of leather matching the bag / accessory and sewn on the inside of the lining. Might look smart in gold lettering too……….
