It was an honor to be invited to attend the Homes & Gardens Magazine Fabric awards last week at the unbelievably gorgeous Ham Yard Hotel in Mayfair (as designed by Kit Kemp). The room was filled with the industry's best known designers and brands so it was a huge treat just to be there and chat with some really inspiring people. With this as the back drop it was an even lovelier surprise to be listed as runner-up in the 'One to watch' category. Yay!! Thank you Homes & Gardens and all who were involved in the judging for giving new designers like me recognition and support.
It's been an amazing year of creativity, challenges, inspiration and determination. Life has definitely been full. I am delighted to be launching Zoe Glencross Fabric & Home. Whilst it has been a sole venture I could never have done it alone and have been incredibly lucky to have had a wealth of supportive people around me. I'd like to thank all those who helped me along the way with their endless talents and enthusiasm...
The Plush upholstery team headed up by Andrea for her energy, drive andsound advice. The great skills of Alice and Charlie must be noted- no sewing task is too small, large or complex! Thank you to Jan Gamble with her brilliant photographic and styling skills and to Sally W for her sound business advice and positivity. Thank you to Mum for sewing and Dad for helping out on that very hot photo-shoot day. Also thanks to the lovely focus groups who helped evaluate my designs.
