Boutique Brand: East Village

East Village is a boutique label specialising in feminine styles made from embroideries and textiles from the Far East.

Designer Karmin Kenny started the label 1.5 years ago with a small range of embroidered dresses that were snapped up by the likes of Graham and Green in London and Mee in Bath. East Village has since produced 3 collections, adorned with embellishments from India, Japan and most recently Vietnam. Each season, Karmin travels to a new place to hand-source fabrics and discover new embroideries.

The current collection features hand-embroidered flowers, birds and butterflies on deliciously-soft silk. Each piece is versatile (beautiful on their own or layered over jeans), comfortable and luxurious. They not only look gorgeous as fashion, but also hung on the back of a door or draped over a screen. A number of boutiques have snapped them up to add to their loungewear offerings.

The label caters to independent boutiques by offering short orders and small quantities.
