Seeking a life surrounded by beautiful things…
Just Add Style is a London design studio co-founded by Em and Lisa, a creatively talented and experienced duo forever on the hunt for all things stylish to inspire and enhance the lives of fabulous women of all ages.
Never short of something to say visually or verbally, from their studio and corner of the internet, Em and Lisa encourage you to live a stylish life with a little extra luxe.
‘London Fashion’ launched in autumn 2019 and begins the Just Add Style womenswear journey. This luxury silk scarf is adorned with fashion illustrations inspired by stylish women Em and Lisa witness in their daily lives working in the fashion and design industries.
The scarf is the perfect visual representation of the marriage between Em’s highly skilled craftsmanship for fashion drawing and Lisa’s innovative design work. Em is one of fashion illustration’s rising stars in sartorial figurative art and has a highly credible background. A graduate of Chelsea Art School in London and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, her career was launched with a sell out collection of original fashion illustrations at London’s iconic V&A museum. She has gone on to collaborate with major international fashion magazines including Elle and Glamour, as well as a myriad of luxury brands such as Radley and Liberty Of London. Her work hangs in private art collections worldwide.
Lisa is a highly accomplished branding expert and graphic designer who’s extensive client list includes start-ups and established brands across many business sectors.
The ‘London Fashion’ silk scarf design began with original one-of-a-kind ink drawings by Em which Lisa carefully translated into a digital textile world, editing and refining the design until the fashion illustrations were re-imagined as a complete print which tells its own story and embodies the urban glamour and signature spirit of Just Add Style and the women who wear our scarves.
As a way to honour and to help empower women everywhere, we will be giving £5 from every sale of London Fashion to Smart Works, a wonderful charity who help unemployed women re-enter the workplace with confidence and style.
The Just Add Style studio is a hive of creativity as Em and Lisa work on designing a capsule collection of silk squares to be launched in 2020.
Em and Lisa love good style and want to share it with you.
Welcome to our world.
