Seamstress extraordinaire and Glasgow based designer Jennie Loof continues to make my tiny heart a flutter with her unique hand-crafted pieces. Every piece is a one off beautifully crafted out of second hand and vintage fabrics with eye popping bright coloured linings. Many a time have I gushed over her floral print dresses only to find that inside they were lined with hot pink or purple. HIYA.
Her work has a real ethereal dreamlike quality. The vintage kitch appeal that runs through all her designs is delightful, everything feels really fun. I suppose the added bonus is that all her designs are wearable and can be altered to fit (because Jennie is dead good like that.) Her real strengths….for me anyway are her dresses and skirts. I love her experimentation with different fabrics and colours – favourite pieces of mine have included a deep wine coloured lace skirt as well as the blue floral dress pictured above. Other than her pieces being super cute and completely unique, everything I’ve ever seen from this wee starlet has always come in under £100. Environmentally and bank balance friendly.
Jennie will be showcasing her new collection at Nightwalk this Friday at the Arches (tickets £15) as well as selling pieces from her collection at the next Bold Souls on the 30th April at Chambre69.
