Wolf and Badger New Designers Preview

It's event after event, night after night, here at Deer Brains! We are loving checking out what's going on and keeping you informed, and last night was no exception. Taking to the streets of Notting Hill we headed to Wolf and Badger, the chic lifestyle boutique which houses a wide selection of clothing, accessories and products from new-generation designers.

We were bowled over by the luxurious fabrics, timeless jewellery pieces and most of all.. these hats! Anywhere that sells a fez is good in our books. But as beautiful as the items were at Wolf and Badger, it was their refreshing, open-armed approach to showcasing new designers which really wowed us.

Due to the struggle for new designers to be able to find and get funding for retail space, Wolf and Badger provide a unique platform for work to be seen by shoppers, the media, trade buyers and industry experts. Graduates are encouraged to apply for selection at the store's Graduate Design Awards which allow 3 graduates the opportunity to showcase their work in the prestigious Ledbury Road store.

The winners who wowed this year were:

Birgit Schmidt - jewellery category
Gemma Land - fashion category
Makiko Nakamura - product category.

You can check them all, on the Wolf and Badger blog.

After finding out the results guests continued to spill out onto the street and enjoyed champagne, sweeties and live jazz in front of the store.
