A Delicate Escape

Keeping my promise, I thought I’d drop by to tell you more about this design…

finalscarfbetaThis design was created for the Beta Fashion ‘Noah’s Ark’ competition. Each design has to be approved before going to a public vote (which my design has been.) The winners of the public vote will then have their scarf sold online and in Topshop stores. If you like my design, I would love it if you could head across to Beta’s website by clicking on this link here, to place your vote.

Thankyou, thankyou my friends 🙂

Scarf design for the Beta Inception Project by Claire Smillie

Finally, the third installment of the scarves I have designed for the Beta Fashion Inception Project. Whoever would have know these scarves all started out as sketches in the park  on a Sunday afternoon?! In this scarf you can clearly see some of those sketches, but I promise you they are there as (almost hidden) layers in the other two scarves as well!

Beta Fashion is a leading fashion initiative which creates unique and affordable clothing for forward thinking individuals. With other designers, I submitted three designs which have now all been approved and are awaiting YOU to rate them to decide which ones are to be manufactured and sold online and in Topshop! Here is a peek of one of my designs….
