Locally based Luxury Accessories Label, Claire Gaudion, specialises in scarves with an emphasis on pattern, colour and texture.
This new label has been well received by customers, buyers and press, and was awarded ‘Best New Product Fashion’ at Top Drawer, London, January 2013, and featured in The Times Fashion pages on 7 March 2013.
CONTEMPORARY YET NOSTALGIC
Recently described as ‘contemporary yet nostalgic’, there is a story to each of these geometric designs which are inspired by the dramatic and changing coastline on Claire Gaudion’s home island of Guernsey.
Claire Gaudion’s design process has a dual starting point, drawing ideas of form and colour from Guernsey’s seascapes and headlands, whilst also exploring ideas on a hand-loom; weaving different structures and exploring how colours change as they are interlaced together. The designs are then re-worked digitally.
All the scarves are printed in Britain, onto selected luxury fabrics to enhance the characteristics of the designs, and are then hand finished.
