Hope to see you there for some sunny summery shopping!
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!
