Head to Toe (18-28 Feb 2013)

Supporting UK craft and design from our Clerkenwell base for over 30 years, Craft Central celebrates the launch of our new galleries this February. Our interesting Victorian buildings have long housed studios, exhibition spaces and business advice for designer makers, but 2013 sees an exciting expansion of our gallery facilities in St John’s Square, enabling us to grow our programme of public exhibitions and events.

The inaugural exhibition is set to show off our brand new galleries to great effect! Coinciding with London Fashion Week, Head to Toe will showcase the best in contemporary millinery and shoe design.

Head to Toe will explore the craft process and skill behind the drama, impact and, often, fun of hats and shoes. With covetable work from an exciting and diverse group of 20 designers, you will find astounding sculptural forms and innovative use of materials from big names in the worlds of millinery and shoe design. Milliners include Stephen JonesNoel Stewart, House of Flora and Emma Yeo and we present shoes from Marloes ten Bhömer, Hetty Rose and London College of Fashion Cordwainers... to name but a few!

Head to Toe will showcase hats by: Atelier Millinery, Bailey Tomlin, Dinu Bodiciu, Emma Yeo, House of Flora, Katherine Elizabeth, Lisa Critcher, Martina Bohn, Noel StewartRachel Black, Raina Lehmann and Stephen Jones. And shoes by: Anthropoid Clothing, Caroline Groves, Hetty Rose, London College of Fashion Cordwainers, Marloes ten Bhömer, Namaan Ebdon and Tracey Neuls. Mirrors by: Haidee Drew.
