Some of you may be aware that Instagram @feronclarkstyle has been a brilliant visual platform for me, enabling me to grow my business, to impart colour and style tips and to showcase brands that offer products and services which I love and think you will, too. From time to time I share these with you via my newsletters.
Instagram has been a brilliant way to discover brands I love working with. These collaborations are usually with incredibly talented women who are at the helm of little businesses. I wanted to share with you some of those I’ve come across recently. I am under no obligation to write this, I simply feel that these little brands would benefit from a shout-out and some exposure. Let’s face it, retailers of all sizes, from sole traders to the big boys, could all do with a little support right now.
With some of these brands I have been gifted items, or worked with them on paid commissions. Where possible, some of them have kindly offered a discount.
Makers of bespoke, personalised British luxury leather & fabric accessories. Handcrafted at their workshop on Island Street, Salcombe. I’m off to Salcombe soon and hope to meet the co-owner, James, and his team; it’s always lovely to meet the makers.
There’s 15% off with code ANITA15.
I had the pleasure of meeting lovely Adriana a few weeks ago at my home. Adriana brought along her vast and beautiful jewellery selection, which she has been designing for the past seven years. Her USP is filigree and it’s gorgeous.
I’m wearing three necklaces which I’ve layered, two bracelets and a fabulous filigree ring. Adriana has very kindly offered you 15% off with code ANITA15 and free P&P in the UK.
I bought this snuggly, faux-fur navy coat last year and have subsequently had the pleasure of working with Louise on two paid commissions. This is one of my go-to winter coats and I recently featured it on Instagram. I’m wearing XS for a UK size 8. It costs £139 and comes in other colours. It’s warm without being bulky. Laurie and Jules have an eclectic collection of stylish women’s clothing and accessories.
Louise is offering 10% off the entire range with code ANITA10 and free P&P.
A fabulous brand for women who love colour! They compartmentalise colour both by season and colour dominant: deep, light, cool, warm, soft or clear. Kettlewell offer tops in a variety of styles, from camisoles and polonecks to classic V-, crew, scoop- and square-necks, all in a staggering array of colours – over 300 in all. I’m doing an Insta Live with them on Tuesday 10 November at 11am (GMT), so please join me as I shall be talking all things colour – trends for A/W20 and the profound effect that colour has on our mood and wellbeing.
Please take a look at these companies’ websites and Instagram accounts. I hope you like what you see. Have a lovely weekend and if you have any questions, please feel free to email: firstname.lastname@example.org
