Designer Spotlight- Peppermint Twist


Araine loves sewing, working mainly in leather her purses are meticulously hand-crafted to create stunning designs.

Araine takes her inspiration from vintage Hollywood glamour of the 40s and 50s, as well as 60s-70s movies.

‘I use mostly leathers, the nappa (lamb) variety, as it supper soft and has a great textural feel. It also ages well, so my purses should last a long while. More recently, I have been working with fabrics such as denim, fleece and velvet/cords.’

Common features on Araine’s purses are appliqu├ęs of horses, ponies, hearts and doves, star-shaped cut-outs, punched motifs, and studded decorations.

Waiting For We Make Christmas?

Ariane is working on some new ranges, including her studded range and jersey range. She is very excited about some new and exclusive designs that will not be seen until 6th December.

Can’t Wait For We Make Christmas?
