#LDF13: ‘Love’ by Tatty Devine
Harriet Vine from Tatty Devine created this necklace as her response to ‘London = …?’. It’s inspired by “Hyde park, RCA and the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band”.
Tatty Devine creates jewellery that blurs the boundaries between art, fashion and culture. They create original designs from scratch, almost all of their jewellery is made by hand in Tatty Devine’s own workshops and they stick to their principles of keeping production in the UK. Their standout designs are all about expressing yourself in a fun and distinctive way. Harriet Vine met Rosie Wolfenden at the Chelsea School Of Art, they founded Tatty Devine in 1999. They were soon selling out every week at Portobello and Spitalfields, and Vogue shot their first collection for their Millennium issue. This year they were awarded MBEs for services to the fashion industry.
They love to collaborate with other creative people, especially in art, music or fashion. They’ve worked with avant-garde girl group Chicks on Speed, British fashion designers like Louise Gray and Peter Jensen, artists including Rob Ryan and Gilbert & George, and they’ve also produced exclusive pieces for Tate, the Victoria & Albert Museum and Selfridges.
‘Love’ by Tatty Devine is one of the words that will be displayed at Type Tasting with the London Design Festival 2013 at the V&A.
