From what I gather from her profile on the London Fashion Week and from her website, Michelle Lowe-Holder is based in London. However, she does hold a citizenship in the UK, Canada and the US.
Michelle creates high end, unique, and striking accessories. All of her pieces are handmade, from a large variety of materials.
“From tulle to leather scraps, vintage bugle beads, embroidered ribbons or state of the art stone plating – they are all hand woven / folded / repeated / twisted or formed to create each unique seasonal concept and design.” London Fashion Week.co.uk
I love the combination of materials, particularly in her jewellery pieces. The contrast between quite rigid materials and incredibly light materials makes for some really interesting pieces and textures. Even ignoring the combination of obscure materials, the textures she creates within her pieces are amazing – they’re incredibly tactile.
