London based designer Martina Spetlova studied chemistry before she graduated from MA Fashion at Central Saint Martins and her background in sciences still informs her designs through her experimentation with shapes, textures and colours to create a unique style.
“Martina’s creations are completely unique within today’s market. Her signature use of plaited leather and fearless eye for colour creates stand-alone, stand-out pieces with a timeless quality. Her devotion to sustainability makes her an inspiring member of our Designer Gallery.” – Ruth Hickman, Selfridges’ Designer Studio Buyer.
Martina always maintains an ethical stance in her work and the materials she sources are always of the highest quality. All Martina’s textiles are handcrafter by highly skilled Syrian woman artisans who are part of refugee charity project in Istanbul, Turkey where the profit goes back into the community.
