embellish honestly

We’re not big fans of embellishing the truth, but apply the practice to things worn and you have our support. Embellishments can instantly update to your wardrobe and act as a signature on your style. 

Burgeoning designers and the style-savvy will be taking early lunch breaks today; to sift through the workroom cast offs from well-known labels at The Strand’s Designer Workroom Sale.

Expect a treasure chest of fabric off cuts, samples, trimmings and buttons, ribbons and lace from stores including Jayson Brunsdon, Fleur Wood, Hussy, The Graduate Store and Nobue. 

If sparkly things catch your eye, you’ll find semi-precious gemstones and beads from Venerari, and beads and chains from Zappacosta. Funkis Swedish Forms will offer discounted prices on beads, zips, vintage Swedish collectable buttons and one-off pieces of Swedish fabrics.

Exception to the rule on embellishing the truth: the bag was on sale too.
