Londonedge and Londoncentral are set to enjoy a third season at the Olympia National Hall in September with a strong mix of long-term exhibitors and some exciting new brands. Amongst the newbies are a number of fantastic accessory designers who will be debuting from UK soil and further afield.

Felicity Clifton is the designer behind the fun and quirky hair accessories range Now, Voyager. The brand was launched in October 2009 and Felicity is looking to expand her customer base at September’s show after a positive reaction to her wholesale line.

Now, Voyager is all about glitz and glamour and applying quirky elements of fashion, nature and the world around us to hair accessories. See her full range at www.now-voyager.co.uk.

Rachel Gaw Jewellery is a fledgling brand from Cumbria, UK. Rachel will be joining Londonedge in September to launch her new Rachel’s Wonders range which features chunky bright roller skates, lipstick stiletto heels and cute mice combined with strings of pearls and sparkle.

“Rachel’s Wonders is a range of affordable, colourful kitsch items ranging from sugar mice brooches to skull and crossbone pearl necklaces. All these items are handmade from scratch from resin and some are also are hand painted,” explains Rachel. “People can choose to customise their pieces as I’m able to offer a wide variety of colours for each item. If you want something specific to go with an outfit or a roller skate in your local derby colours then no problem.” Visit www.rachelgawjewellery.com.

Another young British jewellery designer will be joining Londoncentral in September in the form of Coucou Heart.
