Designing your perfect powder compact?

Designing powder compacts - initial sketches

Some of my initial sketches from this weekend

This year, touch wood, I’m developing my own range of powder compacts. I’d like to be able to offer a range inspired by the glamorous designs of the 1930s to 1950s – designs that are increasingly scarce and fragile in vintage. Think decadent glamour, swans-down puffs, Grossmiths Perfume.

I’d love to know what your perfect powder compact would look like. Is there a compact you remember, that perhaps you, your mother or your grandmother owned, that you would love to see in use again? You’re very welcome to email me at jane @, or leave a post on my facebook wall (“Like” the page first, and you’ll be able to post on the wall). Thank you! x
