Meet the Maker

Coleen Stevenson

So I've started the Meet the Maker project over on Instagram and Facebook and thought it would be a good idea to pop it on here. One day late but the 1st of March was about 'You'.  I don't really post much on social media about me personally in general and I'm pretty pants at it but I thought I would give it a go. My favorite brands and companies are the ones you can see the real people behind it, and see them actually working so I know how nice it is to actually see the person. I love nothing more than seeing the person who has made my jumper or necklace out walking their wee dog, or at their kids birthday party or whatever it is they do. It helps me really connect with the brand and is part of the reason why I love handmade things and smaller business. So here is my chat...

My name’s Coleen and I’m the face behind Quincy. I create our range of silk scarves and clutch bags! I studied Fashion Design at Heriot Watt in the Scottish Borders and currently live in a wee village just outside Edinburgh. This photo is from a recent trip I took with my fiancé to Iceland. I love to travel and the photographs we take inspire the prints I design onto our digitally printed silk scarves. Each of my scarves tells a story of the wonderful places we’ve been!

Finally!

Coleen Stevenson

So it's been a bit quiet over here at Quincy. We moved into our beaut new house a few months ago and have been so busy getting settled in and everything sorted. We finally got the studio set up and I'm so excited to have a good space to create and push Quincy further. It's a new year (only in the second month) and a new studio. I want to engage with you more and really raise our profile! We've got lots of plans for this year and are really feeling motivated so keep an eye on us and look out for great new things.

New Studio!

We have been a little quiet over here at Quincy because we have finally moved house!!! We have found the most amazing house and have been getting moved and all settled in. New house can only mean one thing for Quincy and that's a new studio! It's going to take some time but we will hopefully get it up and running very shortly and start creating more amazing designs. In the mean time 'The City' is still available from our online shop and from our new online stockist www.weareponymous.com. Head on over to take a look and treat yourself!

The City

Coleen Stevenson

The new collection, 'The City' from Quincy will be launching Saturday 29th July 2017. The collection consists of 5 digitally printed silk scarves and 4 smaller silk scarves. Each print was inspired by a photograph taken from different cities around the world. The collection was printed on silk twill fabric by Edinburgh based printers Be Fab Be Creative and hand finished by local manufacturer, Leith based Kalopsia Collective. I'm very excited to share this collection with you as it's a step away from the original Quincy scarf and bringing in new colours and patterns.

Work in Progress...

So, things have been pretty busy here at Quincy, I’ve been busy working on the new collection and it will be ready in the next month or so! I can’t wait to share it with you guys.

I’ve been working with the lovely ladies at Be Fab Be Creative digital printing studio in Leith to get the images printed on beautiful silk twill fabric. All parts of the design and manufacturing process will now be done in Scotland. All packaging and labeling will be sourced in Britain. I want to create a luxurious collection that’s unique and special.

Here's a sneak peak at the first design. I'm in love with the bright orange colours. It will look beaut on any outfit and very summery!
