This week for my 'shops i love' page, I bring you another brand I discovered at Top Drawer. Dear Prudence, started by textiles and fashion graduate Laura Ruth Vickers in 2009.

After graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 2006, Laura worked on prints and graphics for Alexander McQueen and Emma Cook. This led to working with other renowned fashion designers such as Missoni, Vera Wang and Calvin Klein on textile prints and illustrations. She then went onto selling her innovative prints on greetings cards at Brick Lane market. Now living in the Yorkshire countryside, Laura produces unique and stylish prints on cards and paper inspired by the beautiful wildlife surrounding her new home.

I have featured Lisbeth Dahl many times here on Torie Jayne so I was delighted to visit their stand at Top Drawer. They were showing their new Spring / Summer 2011 collection called 'A Journey through a Magical Universe'. Inspired by a place of counts and countesses, barons and baronesses, princes and princesses; a magical world of pomp and circumstance. There were scrumptious cake stands in beautifully engraved antique silver, delicately patterned ceramic ones and the prettiest pink glass ones. Plush velvet cushions in an array of pastels, intricate venetian mirrors and delightful antique boxes lined in velvet and satin.

On my wish list is some antique boxes!
