Jem + Bea – showing at 6 Apartment – Lyceum – Piano Terra
Multi-award winning luxury accessories brand Jem + Bea was launched in 2015 by friends Dominique Hughes and Rebecca Da Silva Lima. Unable to find a desirable changing bag on the market when looking for themselves, they set about creating a collection that was both covetable and practical for stylish mothers.
Before launching Jem + Bea, Rebecca designed for Mulberry, Anya Hindmarch and Burberry and Dominique, who has a serious handbag obsession, came from a law background, which gave them the perfect platform to start the brand.
In keeping with the first style that was brought to market – the now iconic Jemima Bag – each new bag is designed to be modern, fashion-led and luxurious, offering something different, such as a mini clutch, a fresh colour way or a hands-free option. As a wardrobe staple, Dominique and Rebecca believe bags are an indispensable part of your style, identity and personality, so why should a changing bag be any different?
The Middle Daughter is exclusively a girls wear brand for ages 2 -14 years. The concept is to create fashion-forward pieces with a minimal aesthetic, offering a modern wardrobe for the fashion-savvy girl.
The distinctive handwriting of the former brand will be evident yet imbued with this pared-back spin, as is the mindset; less obsessive about building an empire and more inspired to unleash this new girl with lashings of mischief!
