1. What inspires you to design all of the lovely clothing, collars, jewelry, etc. in Wispy Love?
I'm very inspired by my own child hood. I find it fascinating how immersed I could become in my toys. I loved setting up my Sylvanian doll house and then just sitting there and dreaming about each of their little lives, I'm inspired by that feeling of playfulness. I love the experience of seeing or smelling something and being taken right back into that magical little space. Whispy Love is my expression of that place, whimsical, soft, perfect & play pretend.
I'm currently working on a collection that's inspired by the love of growing up with my two sisters which I'm very excited about! I'll be updating with that on my blog.
2. What is your favorite thing to create?
I always get really excited when I'm sewing something new or using a different fabric. I'm not sure I can say it's any one thing. I love creating in any form whether it's sewing, drawing, painting, crochet or crafts.
3. Who do you have model your products? (I noticed they are not all the same person!)
Models, family, friends and me.
4. Is it fun taking all the pictures for your shop?
Yes! I love photo shoots! It's the part that really tells the story of the collection or pieces. I adore playing with that and they're always lots of fun!
5. Is there a particular place you like to buy your fabric from?
At the moment everything in the Whispy Love Store is being sewn from the very full cupboard of fabrics I have collected over the past few years from all different sorts of places.
