Candy Coated Accessories
After completing a degree in Constructed Textiles at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2003, Candy Coated was founded to give textile designer Fiona Ross a productive outlet for her skills in textile design.
While developing her business Fiona also gained professional experience working at Johnstons of Elgin cashmere mill as an accessory designer. For the next seven years she worked with many high end clients and brands. Looking for a change in pace she then became the merchandise buyer and designer at BrewDog Brewery. The contrast between a traditional working environment and a very modern fast paced business has really given Fiona the experience to now be able to take Candy Coated to the next level.
Based in the North East of Scotland Fiona produces her work in her own design studio. Through utilising both her skills in knitting and sewing she has developed a varied collection of products. These range from knitted scarves, pom pom beanie hats and mini hot water bottle covers to cotton baby accessories.
Bright colours and geometric patterns are Fiona’s inspiration which is definitely reflected in her work. The mixture of modern design and traditional technique complement each other perfectly giving an overall cohesive collection.
