In this week's episode of The Capital of Craft, Sarah James from Craft Festival and Find a Maker talks with clothes designer and maker Sigrid Verschraeghen from her home in Silverton, Devon.
Born in Belgium, Sigrid won the coveted Best Stand award at this year’s Craft Festival in Bovey Tracey. She trained as a fashion designer, working with various fashion houses, never feeling at home with the values of mainstream production. A move to the UK followed and the process of creating her slow-fashion label began. Starting with bridalwear, which developed into the meticulously constructed garments that she now makes, which transcend fashion.
