Taking inspiration from my travels abroad, nature and the urban environment around my home in Hackney East London, I create lively and bold designs with a classic, vintage feel. My patterns always incorporate elements which evoke a particular person, place or event, and I love the energy and rhythm that come from working the resulting motifs into a repeat.

If you are planning a project where you’d love to use a personalised design or pattern, email lesley.slater@icloud.com or visit my Fashion Formula store.
