About

2014aAll about Claire Swindale … aka Swin!

I’m continually inspired by living and working in London.

With boundless energy I’ve built a reputation for stylish, colourful, observational and imaginative art pieces, all created with my camera.

My signature style is structured yet whimsical, timeless yet edgy.

2014 saw the launch of a wonderful collection of Limited Edition luxurious Habotai Silk Scarves created using some of my London photography. They are simply beautiful pieces and retain a sense of fun!

The collection has now expanded from Silk Scarves, to Wool & Silk Mix Scarves, Bespoke Silk Scarves and Faux Fur Stoles.

I launched my Interior Design collections at ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) in New York, with my WallpaperFabric and Cushion designs.  It was a lot of fun and very successful!  I’m looking forward to returning this weekend with a larger collection, including the new ‘No Sex Please, We’re British’.  Come see for yourself at Stand 1141b.  ICFF in New York.

It is paramount that all my work is high quality and British made,  I’m continually flying our fabulous British Flag.

I’ll keep you posted.
