Enter the Tatty Devine studio and you'll often be greeted with the strains of off the wall musician Lone Taxidermist.
A little bit dance-y, a little bit electronic-y, a cacophony of sound is ideal music for designing brand new collections, don't you know? On stage, she's surrounded by a troupe of technicolor performers referred to as 'arsonists' and can be found slithering around on a sheet of see-through PVC like it's nothing. Just your average gig, really... After seeing Nat DJ at experimental post-punk trio Bas Jan's record launch, Harriet just had to whip up a BIG custom Trifle Name Necklace in custard yellow. Tasty!
