Objects of Desire
Based in A202 in The Chocolate Factory1, Objects of Desire is a new venture by Meredith Kemp-Ghani who has over 30 years’ experience in commercial clothing design, working for suppliers to the UK High Street and European stores. Customers have included Marks & Spencer’s; John Lewis; C&A Europe; Wallis; Next; Topshop & River Island, to name but a few.
As a specialist in ladies’ wear she has worked on all kinds of fashion products including tailored suits and separates; soft separates; casual clothing and outerwear. Her work sometimes also extends to children’s wear and occasionally even to men’s.
Currently working as a freelance designer in the fast paced industry which is fashion, she has set aside some time to design and make items which could be described as ‘slow fashion’.
Indulging a long held passion for Far Eastern culture, she is working almost exclusively with vintage silks to create gorgeous luxury pieces of contemporary clothing to collect and keep; pieces of art which are infinitely wearable.
To complement these pieces she is also making accessories such as evening purses; hats and scarves. All of the items are made personally and can be bought as ready-made unique items or bespoke versions in fabrics and styles chosen from the range.
