The Accessories Designer
Patricia Nicolás' motto is to "have fun in everything you do" and she most certainly lives up to this in her designs. The company was founded in 2006 after Patricia finished her studies at Central Saint Martins and her pieces can already been found at Harrods and Harvey Nichols. She also was named one of the five most outstanding jewellery designers by Freedom at Topshop, this lead to a collaboration with Topshop where her products were exhibited in flagship stores across the UK. On top of all this she has also worked with companies such as Diesel and Vogue, being featured in various magazines across the globe along the way. Her jewellery has attracted notable fashionistas such as Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung, due to her unique style and individual approach to accessories. We have a quick chat up with her before the opening of her new collaboration with The National Portait Gallery..
How did you find your style & has it changed since you started?
I really admire British style, while in London I always took inspiration from designers, from the music, the events I go to, the people – My style has changed so much...Being a designer it’s all about taking risks and change…Talking about personal style I’m always mixing vintage with current design, which is the principle of my style!
What’s the ultimate message in your designs?
Fun, diversion, passion, it’s very important that you enjoy what you do.
What's your design process?
I enjoy the making of the pieces and the development of the ideas….I draw, I use illustrator, and then make the sample…. it’s so satisfying to take an idea and see it come to light.
Do you have any projects your working on that we should look out for?
My new collaboration with The National Portrait Gallery for the Picasso Exhibition, starting this Thursday 6th October!
What's your dream Sunday?
Wake up late, coffee, go to see an exhibition or a museum, read, and I love yoga too!
What's your favourite place on the planet?
My bed. I love to travel to places I have never been to too. I loved India, such a different country and also Cuba too...
