The Ravenous Belle & Don focuses on the city’s best design talent.
A new designer collective has launched in the capital called The Ravenous Belle & Don, focused on offering the best in young design talent to the masses, covering jewellery, accessories and fashion.
The collective includes jewellery designers such as Selfridges’ Bright Young Things designer Little Glass Clementine who creates recycled jewellery, and fashion-led designers Miquella and Yuki Mitsuyasu, whose collections include a stellar array of star-themed designs which use magnets.
Rosita Bonita, a designer who creates unusual accessories and jewellery with leather and sequins is also part of the collective.
The collective has been created in reaction to what it calls “interchangeable brands which don’t engage”. Instead the group of designers is aiming to help the public to fall in love with the stories behind their work and each label in the collective hopes to be charming, subversive and awe-inspiring.
The Ravenous Belle & Don will show off its design talent at its first pop up art space next month, ahead of London Fashion Week and the London Design Festival. The location will be opposite Spitalfield’s Market at 98 Commercial Street, E1, for eight days from Thursday 8th – Thursday 15th September 2011.
