Windrush Day 2019 Giveaway!


The 22nd June is Windrush Day in the UK, acknowledging the amazing contribution of the Windrush generation to British culture and society.

As the Windrush was a big inspiration for my graduate collection, and continues to be a huge source of inspiration to me, I decided to celebrate Windrush Day with my first Instagram giveaway!

I am giving away some exciting new products, including a ‘You Called We Came’ tote bag, a Hibiscus & Monstera notebook and a ‘Black & Beautiful’ postcard set (all pictured above).
