Meadows is a romantic and feminine collection inspired by Victoriana, prairie-style and folklore. The collection is designed in Hackney, East London, by Australian born, Central Saint Martins graduate, Louise Markey.
The collection is inspired by various sources - the white cotton styles focus on embroidery and lace and draw their inspiration largely from Victorian undergarments. The floral printed and embroidered cotton pieces are inspired from the Victoriana revival of the 1970s. The collection also dips into a wide selection of historical inspiration from the Tudor to the Renaissance and fuses them with a modern sensibility.
The pieces are made in small production runs in the far east in small boutique, ethical factories. By June 2020 the new collections will all use organic cottons.
