News from the markets

I just wanted to share two of my favorite designers, that I found at the handmade markets yesterday, that I now adore.Luckily both have online stores if you feel so inclined.
Firstly, 21 year old fashion designer Laura Maidment who I was lucky enough to purchase two gorgeous dresses from. Laura finished her fashion degree and went straight into designing her own clothes. From what I could see at the markets there were lots of people walking around with bags full of her goodies.
These are the two dresses I purchased and they are both really flattering and I am looking forward to being able to wear them out. The one with the lace is made from a vintage tablecloth meaning no one else has a dress exactly the same as the one I bought. Love it!

(My photos do not do these dresses justice, check out the website)

Secondly, is Susannah Tucker photography, a "world of visual daydreams". I love the whimsical and pretty photos that Susannah takes and am now kicking myself for not buying the vintage photo camera blocks below. Lucky for etsy right? Check out Susannah's store or blog.
