We are very excited to reveal that Imogen will be traveling to Kenya in June to work on a new collection in collaboration with MADE UK. A fashion accessories brand who uses ethical and fairtrade principles to promote trade in Kenya. Imogen discusses the collaboration saying:
“It is incredibly exciting to have been approached by MADE. They are an inspirational company, with a fashion forward mind set, creating stunning jewellery. I’m very excited about the prospect being able to explore the local markets, sourcing glass, beads and fabrics, all of which may play a part in the inspiration jewellery collection we shall be making.”
Imogen will work with MADE artisans directly creating jewellery which will be ethically sourced and sustainable. The time in Nairobi will allow Imogen to work with the MADE in-house design team and highly skilled artisans, learning their skills and sharing her own. The Imogen Belfield for Made collection will include such techniques casting, weaving, braiding and knotting which will be handcrafted in the MADE workshop in Nairobi
“The chance to be involved with such a dynamic and worthy company as Made is a dream to me, and I can’t wait to start creating a jewellery collection that resonates the moral message of ethically sourced and sustainable jewellery.” Imogen Belfield
The collection is due to be launched in the UK in July 2013
