The face behind Objets De Désir...

So in place of this weeks wish list wednesday we have a small interview with Rachel Drake! 

What is the ethos behind Objets De Désir? 

"It's a new online boutique that represents emerging artists and designers from around the world. It's a place online where people can browse carefully handpicked items be it homeware, jewellery or accessories. Everything on there is unique and original, it is all handmade, not like something you would find on the high street." 

Where did you come up with the idea for the brand? 

"Having done a degree at London College of Fashion I knew I wanted to be in the creative industry, however not by designing but by helping promote other creative people so I decided to set up this platform for them to showcase their work." 

How do you select who to show on the site? 

"I look all over, so places like Etsy, Folksy, craft shows and graduate exhibitions. Anywhere that artists will be gathering to show their work. The craft shows and art trails in particular have been great for finding new talent." 

What inspires you? 

"I love what I do and the ambition to make Objets De Désir a household name really pushes me. It's also so enjoyable curating these stunning things and then showing them to the world."
