    Fashioning A Reign - 90 years of style from the Queen's wardrobe. Buckingham Palace

    23th July—2nd October 2016

    An exciting opportunity to see an array of the Queen’s clothing and accessories throughout her life to celebrate her 90th Birthday. Highlights include, the Queen’s wedding gown designed by Sir Norman Hartnell. Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse will also exhibit a selection of the Queen’s outfits. See the website here for more details.

    Vogue 100: A Century of Style. Manchester Art Gallery

    24th June-30th October 2016

    After receiving rave reviews in London, the National Portrait Gallery exhibition has moved to Manchester. With free entry, it is an opportunity to see over 280 photographic prints from the world famous fashion magazine. Visit the Manchester Art Gallery here.

    Ceramic Art York. York Art Gallery

    9th September-16th November 2016

    This weekend show is the North's answer to Ceramic Art London. A relatively new show (only in its second year) is an excellent way to see some of the country's finest studio potters this autumn. Last year, the show was in the grounds of the art gallery, whilst the first floor inside the gallery has the permanent collection of fantastic British Studio ceramics, known as the 'Centre of Ceramic Art'. For more information, visit their website here.

    1920's Jazz Age Fashion and Photographs. Fashion and Textiles Museum, London

    23th September 2016-15th January 2017

    The fashion and textiles Museum in London is one of London's lesser known galleries. Quietly putting on some of the capital’s greatest fashion exhibitions, it's always a pleasure to visit, as their current exhibition 'Missoni Art Colour' is testament to this. 1920's Jazz age will no doubt follow a highly successful year for the museum to date. It aims to capture the glamour of the decade with beaded evening dresses, silk pyjamas to the iconic flapper dresses. Excess and frivolity are captured within 150 garments alongside illustrations and photographs from the era. Find more details here.

    Design Junction. Kings Cross, London

    22nd-25th September 2016

    Design Junction has been a key highlight of the London Design Festival. As it moves to a new location this year, from the old derelict Post Office location it will be interesting to see if it can retain its high style credentials. Open to both trade and the public, expect to see the latest trends within home and interior design. There are also lots of events taking place throughout the capital for London Design Week, so it’s best to do your research in order to capture all of the best shows. Visit the Design Junction website here.

    strydesc11 In celebration of the launch of our Always Entertaining – Deli collection, we wanted to share some of our favourite recipes for dips created by Torie from the blog Chilli and Mint. Our new, modern and fresh Deli range is ideal for casual dining, and special occasions. Including a wide range of colourful bowls, this collection can be used to hold a multitude of nibbles, starters and dips.

    Torie has devised the perfect Italian White Bean dip, which promises plenty of flavour.

    Ingredients:

    2 Tbsp olive oil

    4 Garlic cloves, kept whole

    1 Tsp salt

    2 Bay leaves

    250g Cherry tomatoes

    400g Tin of butter beans (keep the juice)

    Half fresh lemon, juice only

    10 Fresh sage leaves

    1 Tbsp ricotta

    Freshly ground black pepper

    Method:

    -In a deep frying pan, heat the oil until hot and add the garlic, salt and bay leaves. Gently stir for a minute, before adding the cherry tomatoes

    -After a further minute, add the butter beans, including the juice from the tin, as well as the sage leaves and lemon juice

    -Gently simmer until the tomatoes have softened, using the back of a spoon to squash and release the flavour and seeds

    -After 20 minutes, the juice will have dried up and the garlic and tomatoes will soften

    -Using a hand blender, blend the contents of the pan along with the ricotta and freshly ground pepper

    -If necessary, add a little more extra virgin olive oil or boiling water to loosen, if the consistency is quite thick

    Notes:

    - Serves – 4-6

    - Preparation Time – 30 minutes.

    Torie's second go-to dip is this vibrant Roasted Beetroot and Cumin dip, which is the ideal accompaniment to flat breads, savoury biscuits and raw vegetables.

    Ingredients:

    5 Medium sized beetroots, storks removed

    1 Whole garlic

    1 Tsp cumin seeds

    2 Stems of fresh mint leaves

    1 Tsp salt

    2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

    5 Tbsp greek yogurt

    Method:

    -Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Place the beetroot on a baking tray and drizzle over a little olive oil. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes

    -After 20 minutes, place the whole garlic into the same baking tray and cook for a further 30 minutes

    -After 50 minutes, check if the beetroot has softened by inserting a knife. Remove from the oven and allow to cool

    -Remove the skins from both and add the beetroot flesh and the soft roasted garlic into a mixing bowl

    -In a heated pan, add the cumin seeds and stir for 30 seconds so that the aroma is released, being sure that they don’t burn. Then place into the mixing bowl

    -Add the mint leaves, salt, extra virgin olive oil and greek yogurt, and blend using a hand blender until smooth

    -Serve at room temperature with a sprinkling of finely chopped fresh mint leaves

    Notes:

    - Serves – 6-8

    - Preparation Time – 60 minutes.

    strydesc11 This year marks the centenary of the birth of Tibor Reich, one of Britain’s pioneering post war textile designers.

    Born in Budapest to a family of textile industrialist, Tibor moved to England to study Textile Design at Leeds University in 1938. At that time, Leeds was the centre of the weaving industry. Whilst studying in Leeds, Tibor showed tremendous talent, winning awards and recognition that would continue throughout his career. He was later commissioned to produce textiles for Concorde, Buckingham Palace and the Shakespeare Memorial Hall.

    It took many years after the Second World War before Britain was ready to embrace contemporary Art and Design. The Festival of Britain in 1951 was the turning point for the public’s appetite for modern design. Tibor’s innovative and colourful designs were exhibited there and were an instant hit. His fabrics were used in homes, schools, ships, airports, theatres and cars. Colour for Tibor was energy and life itself. He was even reported to have said that he “could live on colour”.

    As well as being an enormously talented textile artist, Tibor was also a gifted ceramic designer. He established a pottery in his garden in Alderminster and worked with a local potter to develop a range of ceramic pieces to complement his textiles. Demand grew for his pottery after it was shown in a nationwide touring exhibition. His ceramics were well received, and Denby Pottery approached him in the 1950s to work as a consultant. We produced his Tigo Ware collection and Tibor also advised on colour and patterns for several of our other ranges at that time.

    Tibor’s infectious love of colour, texture and form makes his designs as commercial and appealing now as they were when they were first designed. It is of little surprise that his grandson, Sam Reich is currently re-launching his textile designs for future generations to enjoy and appreciate all over again. The appetite for Mid-century designs continues to grow and looks set to continue as a trend for many years to come.

    A retrospective exhibition on the work of Tibor Reich is currently taking place at the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester and is on show until August 2016. In addition, a new book and a recent talk by Sam Reich at London's Fashion and Textile Museum, has seen his work gain more admirers and collectors. This is a wonderful legacy that only a truly talented artist could achieve.

    strydesc11 We recently held a bridal press event in London, and showcased our beautiful bridal collections alongside stunning cakes, created by Little Bear Cakery.

    Clare from Little Bear Cakery is a trained chef in Professional Cookery, Patisserie and Confectionery, and during her time working in the catering industry, realised that she had a talent for cake decoration. In 2011, Clare setup the Little Bear Cakery and started baking celebration cakes, taking inspiration from her interest in textures and alternative materials.

    Little Bear Cakery has since been featured on blogs including Love My Dress, Wedding Chicks, Rock My Wedding and The Wedding Bazaar, and is recognised for distinctive and delicious wedding cakes. Clare only uses the finest, responsibly sourced ingredients including free-range eggs, Callebaut Belgian chocolate, vanilla seeds fresh from the pod and luxury preserves and curds.

    For our event, Clare prepared a set of cakes to represent the different collections. For our neutral Natural Canvas collection, Clare crafted an iced cake featuring the roulette detailing and an iced naked cake adorned with fruit, nuts and flowers.

    With naked cakes being a key wedding trend this season, Clare provided us with some helpful hints and tips to create the perfect naked cake:

    - Bake the cakes 2 days before the event. Leaving the sponges to rest overnight will make them easier to slice the next day

    - Soak the inside layers of sponge with a light sugar syrup to keep them lovely and moist. I boil a 2:1 ratio of water:sugar with a vanilla pod until the sugar has dissolved. Once dissolved, leave the syrup to cool and then lightly brush the sponges with the syrup before layering with buttercream

    - Slice and fill your cakes the day before the event. Letting the cakes rest again overnight will ensure a more stable cake when it comes to stacking

    - Each tier should be assembled on a 3mm cake board to ensure a nice sturdy cake when it comes to stacking

    - Finally, don't forget to dowel your cake as you would for any other tiered cake. Transport your tiers individually and assemble the cake in situ. Adhere each tier with a small amount of buttercream and decorate with fruit and flowers as you desire with a final dusting of icing sugar.

    For more cake inspiration, visit Clare at Little Bear Cakery.

    desc11 We recently held a bridal press event in London, and showcased our beautiful bridal collections alongside stunning cakes, created by Little Bear Cakery.

    Clare from Little Bear Cakery is a trained chef in Professional Cookery, Patisserie and Confectionery, and during her time working in the catering industry, realised that she had a talent for cake decoration. In 2011, Clare setup the Little Bear Cakery and started baking celebration cakes, taking inspiration from her interest in textures and alternative materials.

    Little Bear Cakery has since been featured on blogs including Love My Dress, Wedding Chicks, Rock My Wedding and The Wedding Bazaar, and is recognised for distinctive and delicious wedding cakes. Clare only uses the finest, responsibly sourced ingredients including free-range eggs, Callebaut Belgian chocolate, vanilla seeds fresh from the pod and luxury preserves and curds.

    For our event, Clare prepared a set of cakes to represent the different collections. For our neutral Natural Canvas collection, Clare crafted an iced cake featuring the roulette detailing and an iced naked cake adorned with fruit, nuts and flowers.

    With naked cakes being a key wedding trend this season, Clare provided us with some helpful hints and tips to create the perfect naked cake:

    - Bake the cakes 2 days before the event. Leaving the sponges to rest overnight will make them easier to slice the next day

    - Soak the inside layers of sponge with a light sugar syrup to keep them lovely and moist. I boil a 2:1 ratio of water:sugar with a vanilla pod until the sugar has dissolved. Once dissolved, leave the syrup to cool and then lightly brush the sponges with the syrup before layering with buttercream

    - Slice and fill your cakes the day before the event. Letting the cakes rest again overnight will ensure a more stable cake when it comes to stacking

    - Each tier should be assembled on a 3mm cake board to ensure a nice sturdy cake when it comes to stacking

    - Finally, don't forget to dowel your cake as you would for any other tiered cake. Transport your tiers individually and assemble the cake in situ. Adhere each tier with a small amount of buttercream and decorate with fruit and flowers as you desire with a final dusting of icing sugar.
