Sale time darlings. Via instagram stories. Lots of hand printed beauties up for grabs. Just DM me if there is something you like, first come first served!
how's things going? The Christmas hour is upon us once again and I cant wait! Its been a massive year! Its always around this time I like to open the doors of a pop up shop in our founding home town of Brighton and this year is no exception.
Pop along to see us at 40 Gloucester Road to see myself, Marie from Sorrel Bay, Holly and her leather work and our guest this year Grace Wilmshurst and her paintings. We'd love to see you.....
Now this is going to be fun, I've been pondering this festival for a year or 2. I had it earmarked as something special and something that I would like to take The Darling too. And this year, its all come together having been excepted as one of the inspiring little fashion labels to be there.
More artisan than art alone, with individual crafts people accross fashion, art, drama, spoken word, cookery and of course music! This is no ordinary festival, its really got innovation and inspiration down to a fine art.
I'll be posting lots of footage I hope. So keep an eye. X
A lovely blog post featuring me answering lots of questions penned by the fabulous Emma Harris. Pop along to her site have a read and then have a mooch about. There's some really wonderful things on there.
A few months ago I was approached by the good people at the House of Artists with a proposal. Its an idea that I've been dreaming about for years. My designs on walls as art, only huge! Any size, any space, anywhere. With limited editions of only 25 they retain the beauty of the prints and the context of my work.
Its taken some time planning, prepping and sampling to get everything just right. So here you go all you Darlings, House of Artists and Sophie Darling wall art. 6 classic prints in large format printed onto rich fabric backed papers. Art, but amplified, seriously!.

Lastly a huge thank you to Ben Allen and the HOA team, who have put this all together. x
We are opening our pop up shops doors May bank holiday Monday for one week. Our Location is 114 Church Street, Brighton BN1
We are there for a week. I'll also be showing a collection at Crafty Fox Market, Oval, Bethnal Green, London on Saturday the 6th May.
Childrens dresses- our new structured pieces to run alongside our less formal loose fit sun sack dress.
Classic Sophie Darling Bomber Jackets, in silk Crepe De Chine
Incredible embroidered, reversed out print with foil detail in pewter. This is the culmination of an on going collaborative collection of pieces with Ellie Macdonald.
We will of course be having our drinks and celebratory evening throughout the week. Date TBC, but rest assured you are all invited to come along. I will be selling new collection pieces as well as some sample pieces that are completely gorgeous. So book it in your diary now because once they are gone they are gone all you darling lovers out there. Can't wait to see you.
Why, hmmm, because every day (pretty much) I get to think outside the box.
Making new things, rethinking technique, style, pattern print- in fact rethinking all the time.
So what's up?! Loads actually, we have busy beavering away at Darling HQ of late. We have lots of news things in development for my regular pop up sale in May and for the website. My most exciting launch is the new Ready to Wear collection. I'll let you know what our time line is as soon as I can. In the meantime, a few photos for your perusal.
The shop is my canvas, a space to style, a place to breathe. We are there until Christmas, come and see us!
This has been an idea for a long time and I have made some in the past, but these are really my absolute favourites. Super smart, individual, premium and every single book is unique. Now that is pretty special, much like yourself....
Very excited to announce my first shop with my partner in crime Holly M's Leather Accessories. It will be open 3 days a week more in the last couple of weeks prior to Christmas. Its very close by to our studio so we can pop down for appointments if you can't make any of the dates. Just drop me a line...
You can follow all the goings on here https://www.facebook.com/sophiedarlingandhollymleather/ and of course on my social instagram feed too.
We are having an opening night on the 10th of November when we have our traditonal glass of bubbles to celebrate. I hope some of you can make it down but if not see you in the store another time.
