New Designers 2015: One Year On Review

One Year On hosts some of the very best graduates from recent years: now making their way with small business ventures of their own.

Written by Amelia Gregory

New Designers Julia Toledo
This year the One Year On section of New Designers was curated by Luna & Curious co-founder Rheanna Lingham (read my exclusive interview here). I particularly loved the selection of jewellery designers at part one (this is just a small selection) but have included my finds at part two of One Year On in this write up as well. All of these designers are actively creating and selling their products so do visit their websites and get in on the action too….

The new Woven on Stone collection from Julia Toledo (top) features gemstones combined with pure silk details. Spectacular and different.

New designers Hannah Grace Ryan
I loved the tactile nature of these granulated silver pendants by Hannah Grace Ryan.

New Designers Karen Elizabeth Donovan
Super delicate, intricate and beautiful. This titanium necklace is by Karen Elizabeth Donovan.

ND Flora Bhattachary
Bold rings by Flora Bhattachary make a big statement.

ND Mei-Ling de Buitlear
Mei-Ling de Buitlear pearl earring hoops are beautiful simplicity.

ND Hayley Beckley
Hand pleated neck cuffs by Hayley Beckley offer an alternative take on statement necklaces.

ND Rachel Froud
Moving on to surface design, Rachel Froud obviously had fun making vegetable artwork into tablemats!

New Designers Harriet Popham
This unusual print is by Harriet Popham, who was inspired by her local landscape in Somerset.

ND Augusta Akerman
Subtle illustrations by Augusta Ackerman were translated into textiles.

ND perished pets
This tiny blue mouse by Perished Pets offers a unique take on ethical taxidermy (she uses roadkill).

ND Leah Jensen
Leah Jensen creates narrative scenes on porcelain to create unusual vessels.

ND righteous raven
Jungle fabrics by Righteous Raven feature lush colours and bold leaf designs.

ND Charlotte Wilkinson 2
ND Charlotte Wilkinson
These amazing glass brains by Charlotte Wilkinson were inspired by her father’s illness. Such a wonderful way to channel creativity.

ND So Klara
So Klara textiles feature bold colourful splashes, a major interior design statement.

ND Vive designs
This neon lasercut acrylic chess set is by Vive Designs.

All of these images first appeared on the New Designers instagram feed (they very kindly asked me to guest post a favourite selection from both part one and part two of the show) or on my own my instagram feed: follow me there to catch my discoveries as I make them!
