Hi welcome to Style Showroom featuring Violets Handmade Vintage.
A variety of fashion, home items and handmade fashion accessories.
I design make and sell ladies scarves and corsages.
I take my inspiration from the old classic, vintage styles of films like Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, and Rebecca.
I love the atmosphere that these films create and the quality of their story telling. I feel that the classic styles of this period stand out and help to tell the stories of a different time and place.
I am always thinking of these influences when I design and make a new accessory, so that this old world charm may be experienced once again as contemporary designs for the modern woman.
I also take influences from modern day films such as The Dressmaker and Working Girl.
I really like the work of Coco Chanel and she is my favourite designer.
I have ten years experience working in the field of fashion and design and completed a degree in fashion in 2008 at Leeds Metropolitan University.
Since that time I have worked for several respected designers.
I am located in Torquay, Devon, England.
