petal & pins UK launch at Top Drawer London S/S19
As a fashion designer with a lovely old rambling garden, it was only a matter of time until Sandra Alcorn’s passion for flowers and design intertwined. Swapping fabric for flowers, Sandra started designing ephemeral petite dresses with flowers and foliage from her garden and photographing them for her own enjoyment and to share with friends.
In 2012 Sandra and Simon Alcorn started their stationery, art and design studio petal & pins based in Hobart Australia and began publishing Sandra’s distinctive miniature botanical couture as greeting cards - infused with a fashion sensibility and a touch of whimsy. These designs have become signature petal & pins collection the Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe® with new designs added seasonally.
petal & pins unique and enchanting greeting card range has grown with collections now including Love Letters designed with Cécile Brunner roses for celebrations, friendship and romance, Atelier Pétale featuring vintage fashion illustrations with floral millinery, a Christmas collection and the new Scrapbook collection created with botanicals, ephemera and a dash of nostalgia.
New for 2018/19, five popular designs from the Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe have just been released in a pure linen tea towel collection – featuring cream hydrangea, hellebore, rose, pansy and plum & elderberry designs.
petal & pins can be found in galleries, gift shops, florists and garden centres across Australia and will make their UK debut at Top Drawer London S/S19 at stand ZA45.
