27th - 30th January
Stand 2269 : British Jewellery & Giftware International : New York International Gift Fair : Jacob Javits Centre. New York : USA.
International tradeshows have been common practice for Debbie Bryan Studio & Shop since 2007, and have always been a highly successful venture.
The stunning pieces you’ll find at this event have all been created with precision in a tranquil studio in Nottingham’s historic lace market. The work that is created in Debbie Bryan Studio & Shop is following in for footsteps of Nottingham’s forefathers, and aims to encapsulate the proud history of the Nottingham Lace industry and of great British design and craftsmanship.
The award winning designer, Debbie Bryan, uses only the highest quality raw materials to create original knitted and felted fabrics, which are then transformed into beautiful and distinctive scarves and corsages.
Other gorgeous accessories that you’ll find at Debbie Bryan’s stand in New York are the unique and extraordinary hand-cast resin brooches. These stunning accessories have been created using curious materials, which represent nostalgia, a by-gone era and the history of British culture. Brooches can include vintage photographs, ceramics, old currency, Nottingham Lace and many other materials.
A fabric project supported by the Future Factory at Nottingham Trent University enabled Debbie Bryan to work with a specialist knit company in 2012, which resulted in a new luxury collection of scarves, knitted in cotton, mohair and lamb’s wool.
These beautiful pieces are knitted on 100-year old traditional knitting machinery, which sit along-side the antique hand frame machines designed in 1589 by Reverend William Lee, inventor of first knitting frame. The year 2012 marked a centenary of business for our industry partner - a 4th generation family owned knit specialist.
We believe that our offer to the international audience is more than just stunning design and quality materials, what we’re also offering is a part of British history, celebrating a rich culture and treasured making techniques.
As this event Debbie Bryan will be launching an accessories collection, along with a new wholesale Heritage range of lace knits and tableware, which we’re really exciting to be sharing. We hope to be seeing lots of new and familiar faces soon!
