We are proud to introduced a new unique fashion brand called JOHARI. They make hand-crafted clothes and jewellery from locally sourced materials and skills within Kenya. Most importantly and whats makes this beautiful and easy to wear label so unique is that 100% of the profit is reinvested back into community programmes they have set up, such like apprenticeship schemes that provide opportunites to vunerable young women- teaching them skills to build a living for themselves and their families.
Here are some quick pictures of this fantastic label.

Throughout this month we have been challenging our work experience girl Suzi to recycling some vintage dresses. She has been very dedicated to the studio and she has not failed to impress. Check out some of these before and after shots of her work.

it's been too long since my last blog and am very excited to announce the discovery of a Mrs Tutton from Charleston. Thanks to her years of collecting and hording Godiva is very excited to announce the arrival of some of the best vintage we have ever had the pleasure to stock. Here is a wee sneak of some of her most special pieces.
