Emma Barnes created Wild Fawn in January 2015 when her love for making and drawing transformed into the love of working with silver and gold to make timeless jewellery that can be enjoyed every day. Each piece of jewellery is made by hand in her London studio, which is important to Emma because it means that there has been no exploitation of workers or unnecessary C02 emissions from transport to bring you Wild Fawn Jewellery.

Trends: Mono Pattern by Katie Law
We’re embracing pattern again, in fashion and interiors, which together with the rise in popularity of mindful colouring-in books, has resulted in the mono pattern trend. It's all about intricate decorative details, repeated in a pleasing, soothing way. As a look, it’s pared-down but interesting, easy to live with but stimulating - and above - all surprisingly versatile, well suited to lots of different surfaces. As trend leaders, our Pulse exhibitors have interpreted the mono pattern trend and made it their own, in every decorative sphere, from cards and prints to tea towels and wallpaper.
Meet the Retailer: Noah Crutchfield: co-founder and creative director of Maiden.
I set up Maiden in 2009 in Shoreditch High Street as the place to go for something fun, fresh and funny and offbeat. Last year we moved to Boxpark Shoreditch and now have twin permanant stores there: The Gift Box by Miaden and The Play Box by Maiden. Both stock a bright, eclectic range of design-led homewares and gifts, many with a humourous twist that our brand has become renowned for. We also sell online at maidenshop.com.

17-Feb-2018Flowers are back big time. From Erdems’ frilly full length frocks to Christopher Kane’s vintage bias cut numbers, we’re seeing an explosion of old-fashioned florals sashaying down the catwalk and straight into our homes , in every size and shape, from loose, painterly water colours and forensically detailed botanical illustrations to overblown, blousy blossoms.
