Suzie London, founded by Dutch-Australian designer Suzie Kemner, creates 'Pieces of joy' – fabric, fashion & homeware channelling 50's, 60's & 70's style with a fresh, modern edge.

Suzie was born in a small village in South Holland. The family moved to to Perth, Australia when Suzie was nine. Growing up as a teenager in Australia, Suzie’s favourite past-time became trawling charity shops, searching for unique vintage finds. A gifted artist, Suzie studied Graphic Design and Multimedia at The West Australian School of Art & Design and graduated in 1999.

In 2000 Suzie moved to London 'for a year' and fell in love with the city. She studied an introductory course in Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design and later Professional Sewing Techniques at the London College of Fashion, all the while working as a freelance graphic designer.

A million short courses in pattern cutting, textile design and shoe making followed, including screen printing, block printing, digital printing and draping on the stand, and slowly the idea for Suzie London began to emerge. Suzie began creating designs and patterns inspired by 50s, 60s and 70s designs, digitally printing onto natural fabrics including silk, cotton and linen, to create beautiful pieces of joy.

Having lived more than 15 years in London, Suzie considers herself a true Londoner, and champions local British manufacturing. Suzie sources natural fabrics such as 100% Organic Cotton Panama for printing her designs onto, using eco friendly water-based inks.

Nothing makes Suzie happier than designing and making things, and she makes all the zip pouches, espadrilles, cushions and lampshades herself, in her North London studio.

Suzie London has just opened it's first ever shop, in the amazing Blue House Yard in Wood Green, North London, and runs sewing and craft workshops in the main Blue House.

Highly recommend giving this class a try, even if you are a novice like myself. Suzie has a great teaching style - very calm and explains things in simple terms. The class size of 5 was perfect and it was such a thrill to take home something I made. Please go and make espadrilles with Suzie, you will have a fun session and take home a pair of shoes.

The class was so lovely and inspiring! Suzie, as a teacher, is very patient, calm and super friendly. She put everyone at ease and made sure everyone was happy. At the end of the class, we came away with everything we needed to finish off our shoes! Would definitely recommend. Already made a few people jealous with my new shoes and can't wait to make the next pair! (& to attend another class with Suzie!)

I had a great time with Suzie learning how to make a lampshade. I didn't come with my own fabric so she asked me to pick one of her beautiful one. Suzie is very patiente and pro-active in explaining all the details of lampshade making. The result is beautiful and I can wait to find a lamp base to put it up and style the room that I am currently decorating. I am recommending this course to anyone who likes art and craft! Thanks Suzie :)

Susie was very welcoming and knowledgable about her craft. Her shop is well worth a visit as it is part of a bigger craft community.
