They come in two colourways for now while Nia further develops the collection.

Along with that she will be selling her silk viscose velvet wraps and shawls for those Fall/Winter evenings when you want to look your best and be distinct from the crowd.

Each print and design is original and will be sold online and directly from the Designer. Orders may be placed at the show if your size is not available on the rack at the time of the show.

Nia's World Designer/Maker Showcase -

Finding Water on Mars

Date: 5 September 2016 to 11 September 2016
Opening Times: Mon-Sat 11am-7pm; Sun 11am-5pm
Location: The Corner Shop, Craft Central, 21 Clerkenwell Green, London, EC1R 0DX

Finding Water on Mars collection is a symbol of ambition and adventure.

In September 2015, NASA confirmed that water is on Mars.

New findings from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provided the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars.

Kassandra Lauren Gordon would love to space travel, and has researched the different types of surfaces on Mars. Kassandra has taken inspiration from the liquid found on Mars.

Some of the names of the jewellery pieces are named after famous female explorers.

Kassandra Lauren Gordon has made this collection in her East London studio, she has used long-established jewellery techniques which she learnt while studying in the London Jewellery District, Hatton Gardens.

DASMARCA HATS POP-UP SHOP & LAUNCH OF LONDON POSTCODE COLLECTION

Date: 12 September 2016 to 18 September 2016
Opening Times: Mon-Wed 10am-7pm; Thu & Fri 10am-9pm; Sat & Sat 11am-4pm
Location: The Gallery, Craft Central, 33-35 St John's Square, Clerkenwell, London, EC1M 4DS

Private View of London Postcode Collection: 15th September 6pm till late

If fashion is a type of communication, a hat is its distinguishing accent; a fashion accessory suggesting one’s status, personality and lifestyle at a glance. A symbol of culture, politics and society, the hat remains one of history’s most telling accessories.

In a new collaboration with leading photographer Dean Chalkley Dasmarca launches its inaugural The London Postcode Collection, drawing from the intellectual, industrial and creative energies of five of London’s historical areas. Representing spaces personal to Das himself, the collection celebrates the offbeat elegance of urban lifestyle culture across the ages. The industry of Shoreditch, intellectualism of Bloomsbury, businessman of Soho, broadcaster of Chelsea, labourer of Knightsbridge - each of these distinct boroughs comprised a unique demographic of city dwellers whose pastiche made up the eclectic city. Inspired by five iconic hat styles marking each of these areas, The London Postcode Collection represents the social, professional and cultural categories interspersed throughout 20th century London.

With each style consisting of only 100 embossed and numbered editions, each handmade in England by artisans in Oxfordshire, The London Postcode Collection creates a community of like-minded wearers both on the streets and through singular Instagram hashtags for each borough.

It is a silent storyteller hinting at the elegant quirkiness of London at its finest, through its age old love affair with hats.

7 Stages of Grief

Date: 13 September 2016 to 18 September 2016
Opening Times: Mon-Sat 11am-7pm; Sun 11am-3pm
Location: The Corner Shop, Craft Central, 21 Clerkenwell Green, London, EC1R 0DX

Tapestry Needlepoint, Tina Francis

Working with stitch gives you a different perspective on time, I measure my days in inches not hours.  Time is a word you hear a lot in grief, “give it time”, “time is a great healer”, but in grief time has no measure.  I have looked out of a window for a few minutes which has stretched into hours, a year has flown by but each day has been as slow as wading through treacle.  As a maker I am used to creating what is needed and fixing what is broken I have been unable to do this with grief.
