Make Something Plain Less Ordinary

Make Something Plain Less Ordinary

Today I popped in to REW, to see an old friend and fellow small business owner. If you don’t know about her then you really should.

Rachel Emma Wright launched her business back in June 2011 but has been serving the fashion forward crowd for many years. I knew her as the really trendy girl that wore something new and funky every Friday night. Rachel started creating clothing in her spare bedroom after studying milinary at the Epsom School of Art. She later moved her business into a shed at the bottom of the garden and now owns a gorgeous studio in Tamworth, Staffordshire. Here, new designs are born, created and luckily for us we can pop in any time and pick up a unique piece.
