Anne Selby is a designer/maker who creates unique and luxurious stoles, boas and scarves in silk. Her products are extraordinary to wear and dramatic in their visual impact.
Her fine silk and silk organza creations are sensual and feminine, and spectacular to observe – they transform the simplest of outfits into sophisticated glamour. They are the ultimate accessory for the little black dress. These accessories are contemporary yet timeless. They are ‘wearable art’ treasures to wear again and again.
Anne uses Arashi Shibori pleating, a japanese art form developed 150 years ago for creating pattern on kimono cotton yardage. Each of Anne's pieces involves artistry and skills developed over several years and is unique in its colouration. As no two pieces will ever be the same, we are confident that Anne Selby silk creations will always be admired.
