From tomorrow (Thursday 5th December), The Fableists will have a stall at the East London Design Show. This is the premiere design fair in London, in the heart of the city’s creative centre. This is the ideal place to find one of a kind items for Christmas presents, or every day!

We are really looking forward to having a chance to talk to visitors about our clothes and what we are doing. We’d love to show you some of our first collection, including our amazing artist-designed t-shirts (one of which will be featured in a spring issue of Elle UK).

ELDS, now in its 20th year, is a major annual event in the capital’s design shopping calendar, come and enjoy a hugely refreshing alternative Christmas shopping experience to the humdrum conformity of the high street.

You’ll find over one hundred of the best independent product, interior and jewellery designers, all under one roof, just before Christmas.

This year for the first time ELDS will have a dedicated food hall featuring the best in local, national and international foods.

Fashion is a Sign of the Times

cocochanelquoteFashion and history are linked. Changes to the styles and fashions of the day usually coincide with changes in they way people think and what is happening around them.

So let’s think about the fashion that we best want to represent us to future generations. At The Fableists, we’re opting for clean, simple, practical designs and tried and tested styles that don’t leave a legacy of waste, poverty and disease. We want to be part of a change in the way people think about their purchases.

Make your fashion choices wisely because they will represent how we lived, how we thought & felt and what was happening.
