Dawn Machell and Wendy Burns . Talented freelance designers for Childrenswear.

November 2, 2011

I stumbled across the work of Dawn Machell today and really like her style and thought processing.

She is a freelance designer with a background in garment construction and works for companies such

as Mamas and Papas to create some amazing child-centred designs.

Dawn is a busy mum and a witty writer.  Many of her creations come about due to real life events.

You can see what I mean on her pop-i-cok blog.

There’s a real talent at work here, and Dawn I hope you get to write that children’s book one day !

In a similar area is fellow designer Wendy Burns. She has been working in the children’s design field

for about 16 years now. With clients such as George at Asda, Next, Bhs, Mothercare, Boots you can see

why her work is popular.

She is a retail expert when it comes to Childrenswear and can work across print, weave, knit

and embroidery disciplines to fulfil her clients wishes.

I particularly like her wacky robots above and wide eyed woodland creatures below.

More creative work on Wendy’s blog.

Many thanks to Dawn and Wendy for letting me show you their creative designs on Fishinkblog.
