KIDS DESIGN - boots mini club

We had a birthday for a three year old in our family recently - so that meant I went out looking for a present and for childrenswear - a favourite topic of mine. So all this week I'll be looking at kids design and posting some of the latest summer prints spotted whilst out and about. We start with Boots who have their own clothing brand 'Mini Club' which always features graphic and colourful retro florals - like this one (above & below) that has a mid century feel and was spotted on a dress. Scroll down for more pics and find Mini Club online here.

DESIGNER - kate heiss

I recently came across printmaker Kate Heiss in a press release for Athena Art. Athena were famous in the UK in the 1980's and 90's for their contemporary prints and posters, and now back up on running online Kate Heiss's work based on the four seasons will form part of their 2017 collection. Kate studied at the Royal College of Art and graduated with an MA in Textile Design. She then worked as a Textile Designer for fashion brands such as Miss Selfridge, before opening her own printmaking studio. Kate has also produced a range of fabulous cards for publishers Art Angels showcasing her beautiful floral and bird prints. Find out lots more online here at Kate Heiss.
