The wonderful Stare Vie The Store, is our stockist in Guatemala, South America. Founded by the beautiful Iliana Betancourt, it is a treasure house of south american and global designers. Working with them over the past year has been really inspirational. So often we are consumed by the negativity of all the problems of the world but there are always positive, visionary people doing their thing to make life more colourful and interesting. This is why creative industries are so important.

The Royal Academy of Arts opens a new exhibition, 'Dali Duchamp' on October 7th 2017.

I walked home today, along the Embankment, near The Houses of Parliament.
My book of fun graphics is published today! 'SILHOUETTES' was inspired by the the buckles I design for my bag collections. Talking to children who were admiring all the different shapes, inspired me to create a book of them all. The book has no text and no age or language barriers and there is a subtle narrative that runs throughout the book but it is mostly a colourful, fun, collection of silhouettes and graphics. Suitable for children and adults alike to enjoy! The book can be purchased on my website www.heidisturgess.com Or at Amazon Ocean
