About Circe's Knicker Draw:
Hello, my names Rachel and I hand make knickers and other goodies out of vintage fabrics, rescued garments and colourful off cuts. I also use new fabrics with quirky prints, but try to use up every last scrap!
I set up as a freelance lingerie designer after I finished my Contour Fashion degree in 2006, I then set up my knicker adventure a little later and got to show at London Alternative Fashion Week which was a great experience.
After a bit of a break to have my daughter Aya, some serious knicker making neglect and a hectic move from Dorset to Gloucestershire I have just started to get back into designing and creating again!Yay!
I’m inspired by lots of random lovely things . . . . Myths and legends, dinosaurs, ladybirds, creepy crawlies, trees and the sea are just a few!
My signature piece is probably my knickers with a detail at the back, its something a little bit quirky and different. Another type of knicker I make have fabric handcuffs attached, something a little bit naughty!
We Make Christmas:
Knickers galore! Also knickers in some special Christmas stockings and some pretty fabric flower brooches! I have also been doing a lot of drawing recently so hopefully some Christmas illustrated postcards and other bits!
