A very British Christmas to you all

By Justine Tabak

A very British Christmas to you all

With just a few days till Christmas, I wanted to shine a light on a few favourites with Brit spirit for the Christmas season. My silk prints are inspired by East End Pearly Queens, cotton lace is intricately woven by the 'magic' of a Nottingham maker and the charm of a vintage shamrock print in festive pine green is used for a graceful tea dress, perfect for Christmas day. I don't profess to sourcing absolutely everything from these Isles (we don't produce silk or grow cotton) but I do endeavour to use as much local sourcing as possible and all my collection is made in a friendly family run workshop in London.

Kate Hills from 'Make it British' recently quoted "If everyone bought just one £20 British-made gift this year it would raise £1 Billion for the UK economy" 


To  all those who have supported me this year, a huge thank you and know that you have supported not just a new brand but also the talent and the small manufacturers that have helped towards it.
Wishing you all a very happy Christmas and New Year.

In lustrous satin silk,  the Pearly Queen print literally glows with shimmer and shine. In a top, dress, scarf and even a reversible jacket.
Wear your Pearly Queen top tucked in to a raw red silk Bobbie skirt for a full-on party look!
A perfect look for New Years Eve, my Portobello Nottingham lace top and skirt comes both in black and ivory. Looks lovely worn together for evening or layered up with knits or jeans for a touch of laid back glamour. 
For the luck of the Irish! A beautiful washed silk in a vintage shamrock print Chloe dress.
Rosie Birkett, seasonal chef and writer of the wonderful 'East London Food' book at Hoxton Press recently bought one of the Chloe dresses and has worn it on Saturday kitchen and at many a festive occasion! See her instagram posts and buy her book here:

And for me, I'll be wearing the Redchurch dress on Christmas day. Rich red and practical. Here I am at a Christmas market at Shoreditch House with one of my stockists The Acey, a sustainable online fashion platform pioneering style with purpose, ethically and sustainably.
