Hemlines: The Painted Lady

No-one can meld fashion designing and disk jockeying quite like Louisa Jane.

She’s been clocking up followers across both circuits for quite some time, but the gateway through which I first encountered her work was fantastically-colourful “neck candy”.

Take one look at these playful necklaces – drenched in primary hues, their hand-crafted forms recall building blocks – and her creative influences will prove unsurprising: Matisse, Miró, Bauhaus…her polychromatic approach also extends to childrenswear, while her latest textural experiment (a once-off, hand-painted shift dress) went down a treat at Om Diva’s 20th birthday bash.

Most Louisa Jane Design pieces are made-to-order, but some prêt-à-porter necklaces can be purchased in Hen’s Teeth (with a web shop soon to follow).

For a final bout of visual feasting, make sure to check out her new photo series with Sarah Doyle, a fellow colour fiend.
