Heirloom wears for the spirited, the curious and the wild that capture the imagination of both children and adults. Founded in 2012 by London artist and textile designer Sara Lowes, Animalesque fuses Sara’s experience in embroidery design for high-end fashion, and costume design for theatre, to create beautiful handmade animal headdresses for masquerade balls, festival wear, kids dress-up and alternative weddings. The ethos of Animalesque is to make wearable pieces of art that appeal for their elegance and playfulness, whilst celebrating the rich and diverse cultural heritage of handcrafted textiles.
