Acorn’s Trunk Shows

These are the final weeks of trunk shows at Acorns at Old Edwards Inn for 2017 and you’re not going to want to miss a single one.

On August 4 and 5, stop by to see the original pressed botanical artworks of Southern Botanics.  They specialize in collecting, pressing, mounting, and framing flowers, leaves, and other plant materials in the style of botanical engravings.  All of their items are original hand-crafted pieces of art.

On August 11 and 12 Elizabeth Locke Jewelry and Lorain Croft fashion will be on view at Acorn’s.  Locke’s designs have been featured in such magazines as Glamour, Elle, Bazaar, and Town & Country.  She draws on a lifelong fascination with the antique jewelry of the Etruscans, Greeks, and Romans as she creates her own neo-classical hand-made 19k gold jewelry.  

Lorain Croft’s fashion is timeless and modern.  She founded her namesake clothing company while a student of Fashion Institute of Technology and has since gained a huge following thanks to the flattering fit of her designs.

Eclipse Weekend, August 18 and 19, the spotlight will be on Planet Clothing and William Yeoward. Planet Clothing by Lauren Grossman presents a collection of women’s apparel known for fabrics and fit that enhance every woman’s figure. 

William Yeoward is known internationally for designing chic and practical home furnishings, fabrics, and tableware.  His design inspiration is drawn from antique crystal pieces of 18th and 19th century England.

On August 25 and 26, Acorns will bring Tess McGuire and Craven Handbuilt Porcelain to delight shoppers with their collections.  Hatmaker Tess McGuire grew up in Switzerland where she learned to knit at an early age.  She now sells her hats all over the United States and is especially beloved in Highlands for her cloches and one-of-a-kind designs.

Ian Craven is world-renowned for hand-built porcelain dinnerware, wall sculptures, bowls, and vases. His use of antique lace and creative glazes make the pieces simple and elegant.
