As the Editor-in-Chief of British Vogue from 1992-2017, Alexandra Shulman knows her stuff. So we’re delighted that she’s joined us for Cockpit Makers’ Market and agreed to share her choices for #cockpitedit

“After seeing the Anni Albers show, I’ve been fascinated by weaving,” she tells us. So it’s no surprise that Alex has noticed the work of Majeda Clarke “I admire the way Majeda’s textiles are beautiful objects in their own right and also functional.”

Another textile maker who caught Alex’s eye – and recent joiner to our studios – is Bryony Phipps Wardle: “Her knits are original and add a new dimension to British knitwear that is sustainable and environmentally sound”  Alex comments.

Also high up on her wish list are pieces by jeweller Adele Brereton: “I like the organic and hewn quality of how Adele works, she seems to refine something raw and turn it into something really quite delicate.”

And glass artist Michèle Oberdieck: “I found the use of colour in her blown glass vessels really gorgeous – like watercolours seeping into each other.”
