I first discovered the work of Ashdown and Bee at the Freedom Summer Launch a few months back and was instantly drawn to their design aesthetic. Little did I know, bespoke signage for media events was just one of the services the Stanmore-based business offers; styling, event planning, visual merchandising and more are what this creative couple excels at. They were even kind enough to make me my very own TLC sign during the interview (cue the girly squeels!).
For Libby Walsh, the owner of Prop Hire Online, keeping precious pieces on the website and out of her own home is a definite challenge. “I'm not going to lie... there have been one or two pieces that I purchased for the business that have never quite made it onto the website,” she tells me - and I don’t blame her! The site is not only the go-to space for stylists and event organisers in need of amazing props, but they sell some of the pieces to the general public too (I am dying!).
