Tess Young

Tess Young

I live in the north west of England with my partner, 2 rescue dogs and 2 rescue cats. These companions enrich my life immeasurably, bringing great joy and plenty of exasperation; I’ll leave you to decide which brings which. For their part they often see me disappearing into my stash of yarn, vintage patterns, textiles and haberdashery, often to the sound of ‘ah’ ‘ooh’ and ‘argh’ as pretty and precious items are either rediscovered or declared ‘lost’.

My designs are influenced by the south coast I grew up on and the north west coast on which I now live. My love of mountains leads to summer road trips and much hiking in Europe. These landscapes influence how I think about colour, form and structure, and function and wearability. However, I also love the built environment and how we can build striking design into our everyday lives through mindful consideration of the spaces we inhabit. This too, I aim to capture in my designs, inspired by often fleeting experiences and lasting memories.
