The Quintessentially British with a LA Sparkle
Upon a chance meeting at the Brits in LA weekly breakfast at Cecconi’s, sponsored by Air New Zealand, three British lasses came up with the idea for a unique creative business partnership.
They conceived creating a gift box of all their speciality crafts. The florist, the chocolatier and the artist. With Christmas around the corner, and of course, every romantic’s favourite, Valentine’s Day, looming, their timing is perfect.
All three came to LA for their own individual reasons but, as with most LA transplants, all came with an aim to succeed in their chosen fields. People tend to equate British products with high quality and this offering is bringing together the best of each of their individual crafts. Quintessentially British with a LA sparkle.
Stylist turned artisan chocolatier Tina set up her bespoke chocolate company (Hawkridge & Sons) which specialises in hand crafted chocolates made with all organic ingredients, with her two sons.Their chocolates are the result of years of research into nutritional health and food production and reflect the team’s discriminating taste as well as their commitment to organic farming, ethical trading and non-GMO ingredients.
Artist Katie Brightside is a 360 creative who believes in community and people coming together to create a unique foundation to see life in a different perspective. Off the back of her success of her 600 feet mural on Santa Monica Blvd/Crescent Heights, she decided to create a limited edition artisan candle with Hawkridge & Sons to celebrate their British flair.
Lawyer turned florist Kate came to LA to set up her floristry business, Foxgloves & Folly. Kate’s bouquets and arrangements have an overarching natural, loose, asymmetrical style and she is very much influenced by her English background. She loves combining this much more natural style of flowers with the glamour of LA and loves this opportunity to collaborate with Tina and Katie in bringing the very best of British to LA.
