LFW Day ONE : Makepiece

Lie back and think of England...

Today at the LFW exhibition in the esthethica (a set of stands for fashion brands who are ethical) I saw knitwear brand, Makepiece.

Makepiece make the cutest knitted pieces...

And all from sustainable wool from Britain. They even have their own flock of sheep! And all the pieces are made by hand on domestic machine.

"Wildflower meadows, secret picnics and running away over the moors. Our environment inspires us - it's the constant that's always transforming itself." said Makepiece designer Nicola Sherlock-Windle. All the pieces are really delicately knitted in super soft yarns.

Kat wears Briar rose head band, Inchfield ruff (made with wool from the Makepiece sheep), and a briar rose dress

I really loved the ruffled scarves.
