Hello London. My name is Clare Nicolson and I would like a job please

It's all change here at Clare Nicolson HQ. I'm going to be moving to London very soon. It's time to take a little break from my own design business while I get settled, and to concentrate on making new creative plans.

I'm good at lots of things...

1) Designing for textiles, paper, print and web
2) Interior and prop styling
3) Product design and development
4) Buying from and working with independent designers and makers
5) Designing, building and styling trade show, retail and exhibition spaces
6) Curating, designing and running an online shop
7) Designing and printing POS materials, posters, flyers, adverts, web banners and brochures
8) Organisation and curation of large scale exhibitions and events

I'm open to all kinds of creative work and really looking forward to living in a new city and having new adventures.

Maybe you'd like to hire me?

I'm just back from an amazing trip to Portugal. After spending the last week in the sunshine I'm refusing to look outside at the dreary, rainy weather. Instead, I'm looking at my favourite tiles and patterns I saw on my trip.

I'm Havin' A Clear Out

It's a fact. I have too many clothes. I have a wardrobe so full that you have to squeeze in the clothes in a very special way to allow the doors to close. I used to have a wardrobe exclusively for shirts. Nothing else. Just shirts. I also have a bureau. Is it full of pretty stationery and writing sets? No. It's full of clothes and shoes. I think it's time for a clear out!

I'm selling lots of vintage dresses, skirts, shirts and shoes over on eBay so if you fancy having a look you can do that right here

A New Collection For Summer

There has been much bouncing off the walls in excitement here at the Clare Nicolson studio this week. Why? It's finally here! The new collection! It's here!

About a month ago I had the sad news that the digital print people I've been using for the last 7 years were closing down. This all happened just as I was placing a new order for my new collection! Disaster! After lots of research I've found a brand new (still UK based of course) fabric printer who I'm very happy with.

So, after that little hiccup, I'm pleased to finally launch the new collection! The new cushions are available now online
