TISKA LONDON continues beyond aesthetics. The brand is produced sustainably; Stacey is a champion of slow fashion. She names the need for less raw materials as her main motivation: “Fast fashion is mass produced meaning prices stay low. With the prices being so low it encourages consumers to buy more than is needed, this results in more landfill. Around 1 million tonnes of textiles are thrown away every year. Every time it rains, water drains through all the rubbish and picks up chemical and hazardous materials. I follow British Designer Vivienne Westwood’s view ‘Buy less. Choose well. Make it last. Quality, not quantity. Everybody’s buying far too many clothes.”
Founder And Fashion Designer
After achieving a degree in Fashion Design and Technology at Manchester Metropolitan University I became a mum to Harvey. I launched TISKA London August 2017 and it is reaching new heights with being featured in British VOGUE, invites to fashion shows worldwide and Celebrity interest.
I understand the importance of being strong and independent – something I strive to show through my label and designs. Travels to Iceland throughout my life as well as numerous trips to Sweden’s Icehotel, the Norwegian fjords, Tromsø, Lapland and the lakes of Finland has resulted in a deep love and connection with all things Nordic.
“Stacey had the unique pleasure of growing up with sights straight from a fantasy land. Envision a childhood riding Icelandic horses, building tunnels in giant snow drifts, taking in the northern lights and even spending time at a glacier lagoon. Pure magic.”
