My name is Vashti, I'm in my 30s and a single parent to three amazing children, Salem, Caitlin and Irie. While they are at school or asleep I keep myself sane crafting my whimsical creations.
I've always loved beauty and colour and always been drawn to the unusual and quirky. I studied art at college and University, but never knew how to turn it into a career. In 2010 I undertook business training with the Princes Trust and started this little cottage industry with a small loan from them.
I'm hoping to find time to learn millinery in the future, but currently I am entirely self-taught in fascinator making. I have always hummed my own tune regarding fashion. Perhaps this is the reason my work stands out from the crowd?
I love my job. I get a great deal of satisfaction and pleasure from the creation process and nothing is more exciting than seeing my customers looking fabulous wearing their 'Passionflower Creations'.
