Reflection on 2012!

As 2012 is drawing to an end, I am taking the time to reflect upon all the opportunities that have come my way this year and to celebrate my highlights!

The best part of 2012 has been seeing the 'Nostalgia' stationery collection I produced with high street giant 'Wilkinson' finally hit the shops! After all the hard work that went in to the collection between myself and the brilliant trends team, it it fantastic to see the finished result in 250 stores throughout the UK with my photo next to them! Being credited doesn't happen too often so this is pretty amazing.

Other highlights include my first licensing deal! I have been working with soft furnishing supplier 'Primeur' on their new 'Artistic Britain' project. They are now selling a selection of my work on canvases and cushions, and I also have another exciting project in progress to be announced soon! Here are a few of my designs which you can also see at Artistic Britain

I exhibited at 'Pulse' in Earls's Court in the summer. This was my first London Trade show and it was great to meet with buyers and interior designers and get such great feedback. There is so much that goes in to a trade show but it was all worth it in the end! Here is a pic of our lovely stand;

The press coverage for Laura Olivia has been particularly great this year , here are my favourite magazines, you can see the articles in my press section.

Finally, I have been a bit quiet over the last year in terms of soft furnishings design as I have been working exclusively for a fashion designer in Mauritius. I am aching to show you all the digital prints that will be used for resort-wear garments which no doubt I will be able to do in 2013.

Plans for 2013 will start with the launch of my new collection of home accessories and who knows where they will end! Thank you to all my clients, customers, online stockists and followers who have made 2012 such a great year .
