In 1992 Clarissa graduated from Brighton Art College and moved to London to become a freelance textile designer. By 1994 she had opeed her studio and created a range of scarves, which were soon snapped up by Barneys in New York. The business grew internationally and in 2000 Clarissa was approached by Liberty's to design a range of scarves as they celebrated their 125th anniversary. The past decade has seen Clarissa expanding her range, launching her website and suppyling over 100 stores worldwide and collaborating with high street stores for various homeware ranges.
I adore Clarissa's work, gorgeous colourful designs that seem to work for a variety of products. I also admire the fact that Clarissa combines running a successful design business with motherhood. Whilst her business was started before her family when so many of us start our businesses to avoid trying to combine the 9-5 with being mummy, Clarissa certainly has not let having young children stall her creative output. I can only hope to see many more years of designs from Clarissa Hulse.
