Bright Young Things exhibit to fill window display on Oxford Street.

Graduate designer Pip Jolley is set to showcase her 1940s-inspired jewellery at Selfridges on London’s Oxford Street, as part of Central Saint Martins’ Bright Young Things scheme.

The 22-year-old’s work, which includes necklaces and pins based on the spiky design of hair rollers, will be available to buy through Selfridges, alongside work from six other Saint Martins design graduates. Their work will also be part of a window display at Selfridges.


Originally from Wigan, Jolley studied jewellery design at Central Saint Martins, graduating earlier this year.

Her work has featured at shows such as New Designers and at the V&A, and Jolley was also a finalist in EC One’s Unsigned graduate design competition. She was commended at the Lowe & Partners Nova Awards last month for her retro-inspired designs.

Jolley quotes Coco Chanel as a source of inspiration for her collection and says “Women should always look fabulous, even if they are just popping to the shop in their hair rollers, it’s all about glamour.”

Jolley says that her work being exhibited and sold through Selfridges bring her “one step closer to my dream.” The Joanne Collection by Pip Jolley will be available at Selfridges from January 5 until February 15, 2012.
