Founded in 2018, Lidia Russo Designs is a bespoke brand specialising in reclaimed textile bags. Supportive of a circular economy, Lidia is exposing the waste from the fashion and textile industries to show that it can be used in a positive way, loving and making the most of materials already at hand. Three different styles, Tote, Postal and Backpack, each are designed to be reversible.
Made to last, by re-imagining unwanted textiles into her designs, the bags are not only handcrafted; they are bespoke, individual, limited editions. Striving to achieve ‘slow fashion’ the antithesis of the throw away, mass-produced culture of today.
Ayla Akdemir, the chief Wagtail here, has invaluable experience from her film and TV industry background, to help craft your film into something less 'wedding cliché' and more genuine. Having worked within the camera department on projects such as 'Skyfall' and ITV's 'Whitechapel', in 2016, Ayla was contacted by the BBC after director, Francis Whately, came across her video of the Brixton streets, the day Bowie died. Subsequently, Ayla's footage aired on BBC2, as the opening and ending to the Documentary 'David Bowie: The last Five Years'.
