Establishing your own accessories brand during the final year of your degree would seem a stretch for most students. However, University of Leeds Arts and Design student Eleanor Pead decided to become her own boss in late 2011, setting up ‘The Accessory Stand’. Drawing on her previous experience in the fashion industry working at brands such as Whistles and L.K.Bennett, Eleanor witnessed first-hand customers’ tastes in accessories and her brand has now become a hit with style savvy shoppers. Attending trade shows, choosing wholesalers and designing accessories is the new routine for Eleanor. Her own personal style is inspiration when creating items: ‘I am my customer’, she comments.
Offering a wide selection of cute hand-made accessories, the must-have items include the double finger crucifix ring and the pastel skull ring, that is perfect for this season’s pastels trend.
The Accessory Stand’s student-friendly prices range from £1 to £5, so if you are searching for a special item to glam up your winter outfit, be sure to check out the Accessory Stand.
