Best known for her Armour Tote bag, the Kingston University graduate launched her label a mere two weeks after graduating in 2007. Five years on and her simple yet sophisticated accessories compliment her mainline collections, adding a quirky touch each season.

Already stocked and loved by the luxurious London department stores Liberty and Harvey Nichols, we here at Grazia can only expect even more phenomenal fabrications to come from Hulme!
