Featured at London Fashion Week, the Bobby Abley Fall catwalk range was widely received as contemporary, cutting edge and full of his witty humour. Based at his London studio in North Kensington where he is part of the NEWGEN platform, he turns his style visions into style icons. For a couple of years the couture designer has collaborated with Disney, last season the Teletubbies were his inspiration (thanks for the giant Po, my boy loves it!), this Fall 18 is looney tunes.
Lucky enough to work with the designer himself at his London base, I spent some time on accessories with Bobby. Caps, gloves, totes, backpacks and other items were a key part in delivering Mr Abley’s range. A real pleasure to work alongside and see his creative process in person.

For the Autumn Winter 2016 season I worked closely with the buyer and a supplier based in China. We designed, developed and produced several styles in the F&F range. Producing sets of 2 pack beanies, 3 pack gloves, sets of mitts, trilbies and more, across older and younger, boys and girls.
The beanies feature a plain style and a patterned style in the 2 pack, on the boys it was mixed irregular stripes and colour blocking with twisted yarns. The younger girls styles had polka dots, stripes and colour blocking with grey marl. They were all touch scree, super soft and magic stretch. Quality value for money items. Was great fun working on these styles. Have a look at the range available in store and online. The monster beanie is my favourite.
