I came across Lizzie King’s dip dyed tassel earrings, while helping out a friend on a photo shoot, and instantly fell in love with her quirky designs. Her story began a year ago when she was commissioned to make a one off dip-dyed tassel for a photo shoot. She says “It was the first time I’d attempted to dye anything other than my hair but I became a tie dye enthusiast from that point on- since then I have sat through hours of tie dye tutorials”.
The Dalston based designer has now taken to using her dip-dyeing skills on to clothing, shoes and even running her own ‘Get Rich or Tye Dyeing’ workshops, which look ridiculously fun!
What I really love about Lizzie’s designs and talent is that they are so vibrant and fun and could add such uniqueness to your style. Lizzie recalls when her friend Jess wore the bright orange and yellow tassel earrings; a man on Ridley Road market gave her a free bunch of grapes as they made him so happy!
When I caught up with Lizzie she told me that “I love seeing people wearing them – especially as my customers so far range from 12 years old to 90.” Now with a broad customer market like that, I can only feel the Lizzie Kingdom brand will only be going from strength to strength.
To see more of the Lizzie Kingdom collection or even send her your old t-shirt to dip dye through her online service, visit her website:
Some of the dip-dyed tassel earrings are also stocked at Mint Vintage in London
