From the day I heard I had been selected by Kelly Hoppen to work with her for the Prince’s Trust Tomorrow campaign it has been a whirlwind. You will see from past blog posts all of the great opportunities being involved in the campaign has brought, from being photographed by Rankin, meeting Kelly Hoppen MBE at her design studio and beginning the mentoring and design process. Appearing in the Sunday Times Style Magazine, Grazia, Hello! and the Metro, being interviewed by MSN Style and meeting the team at QVC with whom we are launching our interior products.

The whole process has been amazing, there have been so many highlights. I have always been surprised by what the Prince’s Trust have in-store next. The campaign has been a huge success, the mentoring and the products achieved from each couple paired for the Tomorrow campaign has been amazing, and there is still more to come!

I am delighted with the amount that Kelly and I are hoping to raise for the Trust through our appearance on QVC next Monday! You can look out for us at midday, 3pm, 6pm and 10pm, four slots throughout the day where I will be with Kelly showing what we have designed. I cannot wait! I feel much more at ease after my guest audition at QVC and the live show is going to be fantastic.

I don’t want it all to come to an end. It has been so inspiring working with such an amazing designer and businesswomen. Kelly has all the design and business nous I hope to continue learning by. Day to day our end products are very different, but our collaboration has been a huge success and I am so proud of the final products. It has certainly cemented the fact that I would like to license more of my designs onto other products, and being mentored by Kelly has shown me that applying my designs to fabric is different to the approach I take for my greeting cards.
Thanks also to ‘Greetings Today’ and ‘Progressive Greetings’ magazine who have featured the story!
So don’t forget, we are live on QVC Monday November 19th at 12pm, 3pm, 6pm and 10pm launching the throw and cushion we have created. They are the perfect gifts for Christmas or just for yourself, and it’s a guilt-free purchase as the proceeds go back to the Prince’s Trust.
I will be following up Monday’s show with lots more news and photographs and some other announcements too, so keep an eye out for those!
