London Fashion Designers series – Wears London (Amanda Hancox and Theodora Alexandra Luca) chatting with Sarah Watkinson-Yull, founder and designer of Yull Shoes.
Filmed and edited by LondonVideoStories (Mihai Andrei).
The “London Fashion Designers” series brings you video interviews with the amazing fashion designers that joined our Wears London community. They’re talented, very creative and yes, absolutely fabulous! We truly believe the world should see their creations, as we know how hard it is for any emerging artists to breakthrough into the London fashion cluster.
Wears London plans to be more than an online marketplace, namely to provide a really strong community of designers who can work together and share resources. We’re also looking to help solving some of the issues around sourcing materials and encourage UK manufacturing, whilst help good trainees to grow their brand and hold fashion shows for up-and-coming London designers.
