The Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries shares graduate success from University of Portsmouth Fashion and Textile Design student, Faye Clarke. Faye is the designer behind Ma’s House – a new label showcasing her fabulous new collection on the IJL catwalk.
IJL (International Jewellery London) takes pride in its emerging talent programme and works with strategic partners to ensure that both new and established designers’ work is exhibited at Olympia in September each year, where trends are unveiled and the jewellery industry meets in the creative capital of the world. IJL plays a pivotal role in the jewellery sector, as both influencer and mentor to many in the industry.
Faye Clarke’s label unveiled its new unique smart labelling system for the blind and visually impaired. This consists of computer chips within clothing labels which, using the app on a mobile phone, give a verbal description of the garments appearance, size and washing instructions. The second part of the labelling system is a quick colour indication label using braille for ease of dressing.
Faye recently met with IFL to talk about Ma’s House:
Company of Makers “design and make products inspired by the British military’s influence on pop culture.” And their purpose behind making these products (personalised cushions, bags and aprons using ex/serving, donated or sourced uniforms) is to “help fund making workshops for ex-service personnel and their families who are struggling with life on civvy street.”Faye Clarke
