  • Core Calls
    Core CallsOver a month long period, myself and three fellow creatives operated a community phoneline to offer vital social support to those who needed it most during lockdown. From these conversations and those I collated from a wider demographic, I created a series of works documenting the experiences, feelings, and hopes for the future that each individual shared. The aim was to create a platform for their stories as well as a record of this unprecedented moment in time.
  • Everpress Holiday Collection

  • Holiday Collection 2020
    Holiday Collection 2020We believe in promoting a better way to shop and working towards a sustainable future for fashion, so we asked some of our creators to take part in our first ever Holiday Collection, offering a chance to our buyers to choose a gift they were proud of. It’s never been more important to support independent creators over something rushed from your traditional, cookie-cutter High Street brands.⁠
