    Junkbox Jewellery at Just Another Fashion Show

    Colour Chamelion Carrie Anderson, 26, from Wrexham, is the funky owner of Junkbox Jew-ellery. Creating her handmade, one-off pieces with a shop to be opening in Chester within the next year, Junkbox Jewellery is sure to be a big hit. Carrie talks to Danielle Gay about her jour-ney as a struggling up and coming designer, and what the future holds for her unique com-pany.

    Meeting Carrie for the first time is an event in itself. After send-ing and recieving numerous texts and emails it is clear Carrie is a busy lady and never in one place for long. I finally catch up with the girl herself at Chester Racecourse where she is set-ting up her stall for the event Just Another Fashion Show. With her recently dyed red hair and quirky outfit her flair for all things fashion is apparent. Car-rie pulls me to one side, tells me how stressed she is and min-utes later im helping her set up her stall as she talks me through her life as an independent

    designer for her label Junkbox Jewellery. Fashion has always ran through Carries veins, with her mother owning her own clothing shop in the 80s. Work-ing full time as Senior Manager for Topshop in Liverpool has given Carrie the inspiration to start her own jewellery line. I saw some of the pieces that Topshop sells (Freedom Jewel-lery) and its all so big and beau-tiful. There was this one neck-lace I really liked but I was skint and had to wait until payday to buy it, but then I had a thought that maybe I could make some-thing similar to it. I went home,

    found an old chain and earring and my first piece of jewellery was created. Carrie has never looked back. Asking family and friends for old unwanted jewellery and scouring char-ity shops has become second nature for the jewellery fanatic. I just love taking unwanted or broken things and giving them a new lease of life, turning them into something new and exciting and beautiful. It was after Carrie had made several pieces and started giving them to family and friends as gifts that she had the idea to start selling her creations. People suddenly started requesting pieces to be made after seeing me or friends wearing them. I make things that are similar but no two pieces are the same. I found myself making more and more jewellery in my spare time, it started to become more than just a hobby that I enjoyed, it was making me money and so I decided to start running table top sales at craft fairs. Carrie and best friend Kim, creator of recycled clothing line Beautiful Ugly Clothing started to run a stall together at Telfords Vintage

  • This Months One To Watch... fashion fairs, and soon they started to attend any event go-ing. The customers just kept on coming and we started a part-nership with other stall owners and events coordinaters. We started to get involved with the fashion shows that run, Just Another Fashion Show being the first of many. Since then Carrie has expanded her busi-ness to the world of social net-working site Facebook, where customers can view photos of pieces for sale, or request a piece to be made. Ranging from necklaces to earrings to braclets, or the more unusal head pieces, body jewellery and the downright bizarre toy jewellery there is something for everyone. Careful thought and craftsmanship goes into every creation and new pieces are posted everyweek, guareented to make heads turn. So what is the next step for Junkbox Jewellery? I didnt expect it to turn into something so big in all honestly Carrie tells me. It was just a hobby, now I practi-cally devote all my free time to it. Im currently still working at Topshop but im saving all my spare pennies to turn Junkbox Jewellery into my fulltime career. Kim and I have plans to open a small shop in Chester soon, the plan is to go into partnership and hopefully have something opened by this time next year. Chester doesnt have any shops like it, the closest Chester gets to originality is the Vintage Shop (situated below the rows on Watergate Street in the Town Centre). With the popularity that Carrie has created so far

    Like what you see?You can join Carries Fan club on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/junkbox-jew-elleryor find her stall at Telford Warehouse Vintage Fair on the 20th May.

    the shop looks set to be a success. Weve already been in talks with an agent to buy somewhere so hopefully things will start falling into place soon. For now though im going to keep selling stuff on facebook and start making more products ready for the shop. And with the Chester races soon approach-ing ill be blown away with making things. Everybody starts requesting unusual and fancy pieces to wear but I dont mind. My customers are my best ad-vertisers. As customers start into poor into the pavillion Carrie excuses herself and becomes full of life, a natural sales wom-an, selling her creations with a smile like a pro.

    Trend Reports Just Another Fashion Show

    Chester Racecourse played host to the latest installment of Just Another Fashion Show at the end of April. The starry affair boasted vintage clothing stalls, Indie bands and a fashion show that show-cased some of Ches-ters biggest boutique summer clothing lines. The show is the fifth to be organised by a host of people raising money for different charities. This time round all proceeds went to CLIK Sergant (Cancer Leukemia in Children). With 50 male and female models running around the show took some organising, and generously everything was done for free. MAC makeup artists volenteered their hair and makeup services, clothes were donated and models walked their walk for charity. Host and organiser of the show Lauren Emilio cant believe the turnout for the show. With around one hundred tickets sold so far, and one hundred more to sell on the door its our biggest turn out yet. So much effort has been put

    into organising the show and everyone has chipped in and volenteered their services, all in the name of charity. Featured-clothing in the show varied from Zaras summer collection to small designers from Chesters boutique stores. Pop Boutique, Ally and Kawley all made an appearance on the catwalk. Zara wowed the audience with its khaki tailoring and neutral hues, featuring blazers and linen hareem pants mixed with tan accessories. Pop boutiques summer range included ditzy florals, 50s style bright romper suits, mixed with coloured heels and retro sunglasses. Kawley showcased lace adorned pon-chos, and hippy dippy maxi dresses. Ally brought a touch of sci-fi to the runway with fluores-cent halter tops and distressed denim mixed with faux leather pants and skirts. Kylie Thomp-son, 22, joint organiser of the show, attends Chester Univer-sity and is currently studying in her third year of a fashion

    course. I started running the fashion shows as part of my portfolio work for university. Each show I do gets bigger and more glamorous everytime. I set myself challenges and this has been the hardest yet, but theres so many people helping that its turning into a real success. Im already planning the next big event. Backstage is where the models and their dressers
