*NEW* Feature Friday - The Hall's Landing 13th Of June



New Feature Friday!
Featuring The Hall's Landing

Happy Friday everyone! If you're in the UK you may have noticed how much sun we've finally been getting; I'm hoping as you are reading this, you're relaxing in the sunshine in the great outdoors! I'm chuffed to announce this week's Feature Friday to you; It was when I visited Leeds for the first time a few weeks ago that I came across this independent store within the Corn Exchange. Now if you don't know Leeds, you will find it's a ginormous place for shopping, eating and days out; I did a little research before I visited and put down a visit to the corn exchange onto my 'to do list!' The building itself was beautifully built from top to bottom, There were many small shops that sold a vast array of items from vintage to piercings. 
As I entered a well lit store, soft music played as I scanned the railings of draping material, clothes that each had their own story to tell. The lovely lady sat behind the counter was Jeni, she was bright and bubbly and keen to tell us about what she designs, creates and sells at The Hall's Landing. 
She is such a talented woman that deserves her creations to be displayed and put under the UniqueLoveStyle spotlight! 
It's my pleasure to show you our interview and some of the pieces she has made and sells within the Leeds store.

Interview with Jeni Hall l Director Of The Hall's Landing // Designer & Creator Of Sister's Wardrobe

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career? 
I've always had a lot of support from my family, friends & husband who I couldn't have done a lot of things without. I got a lot of creativity from my nana growing up, I've had a lot of ups & downs along the way but I believe things always happen for a reason & some things are definitely blessings in disguise :-)

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
 I love the freedom I have to design & create what I like for my label Sister’s Wardrobe & whilst working in The Hall’s Landing it’s great to see my designs on people, their reaction & also getting feedback from them. It’s hard work but you know that everything you put into it is worth it & 100% for yourself which makes it even better!

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
Opening my own boutique! Since graduating from University I have put everything into  my own label, stocking boutiques with my unique & one off pieces. It’s great to still stock these boutiques, but I now have the chance to sell it myself too & see it growing. I never thought I’d end up owning my own boutique & it also gives other independent designers a chance to showcase their own bespoke pieces too & sell them here.

4) Where do you see yourself in the future?
Hopefully The Hall’s Landing will have expanded & I’ll have taken more & more independent designers on who are maybe just in the early stages of creating their own label. I also hope to have my own label in more boutiques across the UK & increase brand recognition too.

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
Take advice & help from people who support you but always stick to your ideas & creativity. It’s easy to follow others & go down the same route but enjoy being individual & daring to be different sometimes. It’s hard work & you’ll have to put everything into it at the start but you’ll hopefully start reaping the benefits early on.

6) Which would you say is your favourite item from your shop at the moment?
It has to be a Sister’s Wardrobe piece of course! Everything is a unique & one off piece meaning nothing is seen twice....from dresses to leather clutch bags...why would you want to look like everyone else??
