For our Season Two Finale I am thrilled to say my guests are Harriet Vine MBE and Rosie Wolfenden MBE perhaps better known as Tatty Devine.
They met at Chelsea School of Art in the late 90s but only became friends when Rosie’s roof fell in and she moved into Harriet’s spare room. Founded in 1999 Tatty Devine turns 18 this September and is an icon of British design.
Rosie and Harriet have gone from selling at markets to directing a brand with a seven figure turn over. Their journey has been convoluted, which we’re about to dive into, it took them from bin bags filled with discarded leather to Vogue’s Millennium issue.
Tatty Devine has been seen on the catwalks and featured in just about every publication you could care to mention. They have collaborated with Rob Ryan, Belle and Sebastian, Anthony Gormley and created works for Tate, South Bank and the V&A (where they once waitressed).
In 2013 they were honoured by the Queen and received MBEs in the New Year’s Honours list for services to the fashion industry.
Today Tatty Devine has two shops including their original Brick Lane studio and a studio in Kent where their work is made by hand by a team of skilled women.
This episode is filled with inspiration, I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed recording.
