The brainchild of one Genevieve Preece, they’re called Vieve and they rock. We couldn’t be happier to have them on board.
We caught up with Genevieve in order to learn who they are and what they do:
Hello Genevieve. Could you sum-up Vieve in one sentence?
Vieve is an eclectic mix of customised vintage and handmade fashion clothing and accessory pieces.
What will you be selling on the day?
Vieve will have beautiful, unique pieces of customised vintage and handmade clothing, hand dyed and printed silk scarves, vintage inspired jewellery and accessories.
What can we expect from your stall? Will there be any special new products or promotions on the day?
Vieve strives for an individual boutique style, presentation is key whilst love and attention is given to each individual item to ensure Vieve’s customers can find something perfectly special for them. Vieve will have a suitably summery feel and as a special treat we will be offering a complimentary present for those who spend over £30 in one purchase.
How exciting! So how did Vieve come about?
I have always had a strong passion for the creative world, at University I studied Fashion and Textile Design, and I am now really enjoying finding unusual vintage items and turning them into something special and making beautiful handmade pieces with a quirky feel. I love to embroider fabrics, and use print and dye effects to create something fabulous. My great passion is seeing others enjoy my pieces and look gorgeous wearing them.
What attracted you to take part in Swop n Shop?
The Swop n Shop is a great opportunity to support a worthwhile charity and also take part in a wonderful event in Derby. I look forward to spreading the Vieve name and meeting customers, new and old.
And we look forward to meeting you, Genevieve!
