Donna Wilson wins 2010 British Designer of the Year Award – Elle Decoration
A couple of months ago I found out that my Mog plate was short-listed for the Elle Decoration British Design Awards, and unfortunately Mog didn’t win, but I just found out that I won for Designer of the Year!
So thank you to all my lovely customers for all their support, and of course my fantastic staff as without them I wouldn’t be able to do what I do: Erin, Laura, Kate, Kristina, and Imogen who all work so hard (especially over the last couple of months).
The article is in the December 2010 Elle Decoration, out now:
Designer of the Year: Donna Wilson
There’s no-one quite like textiles queen Donna Wilson. Her fabulous products include colourful cushions, tea-time accessories, playful ceramics and, of course, the starting point for the whole shebang — her collection of curious knitted creatures. In 2010, three new additions to the creature family have won our hearts: bashful ‘Wolfie’, who collects spoons; ‘Peanut’, who needs coaxing out of his shell; and ‘Puddle Man’, who likes to whistle when it rains. Imaginative, quirky, cool. Need we say more?
Thanks so much to Elle Decoration; it’s an honour!
