After years travelling and living in different parts of the world, Brenda has returned to Cambridge where she now lives and works. Her current projects are particularly inspired by time spent in Venice and Istanbul. Her imagination has been fired by the Byzantine world of these fabulous cities in which the styles of Europe and Asia meet and merge. She's seduced by the opulence of that world, its grand spaces and secluded corners and by the patterns, textures and myriad colours with which the artisans adorned their clothes and ceremonies .Brenda's designs aim to capture the magic and brilliance of this extraordinary culture in highly distinctive clothes of quiet elegance.
