ONLY CHILD : JEWELLERY // PRINTED T'S // HAND-PAINTED LEATHER
ONLY CHILD was founded by East London based designer Kelly Jackson in 2013, creating boldly designed handmade jewellery collections and bespoke statement pieces for red carpet, stagewear & fashion editorials. It has grown into a multi-line brand that produces handmade jewellery & stagewear as well as unisex printed apparel collections and hand-painted vintage leather pieces that are sold around the world. The brand promotes having an open mind and a positive attitude.
It has received an amazing response since it's official launch at Boxpark Shoreditch in February 2013 and has been featured in a number of high profile publications such as The Sunday Times Style Magazine, Wonderland Magazine, Paper Magazine, Hunger Magazine, Grazia, Glamour, Look Magazine, IDOL, Stylist Magazine, Professional Jeweller etc. as well as several music videos and an ART x FASHION exhibition in NYC.
Creative Director (& only child) Kelly was inspired to create ONLY CHILD by an innate curiosity of the extraordinary, otherworldly and popular culture influences as well as her time spent developing a solid understanding of the fashion led creative industries while living in London since 2006. This has included graduating with a First Class Honours degree in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art at UAL and working as a print designer for high profile brands such as Alexander McQueen as well as working freelance as a designer, artist and art director and exhibiting original artwork in several galleries. Kelly paints the upcoming bespoke leathers by hand herself and all of the designs printed on the soon-to-be-realeased T shirt collection came from originals drawn by Kelly.
ONLY CHILD has been a firm celebrity favourite since it’s conception, being championed by Cara Delevingne, Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, Jaime Winstone, Mary Charteris, Poppy Delevingne, Ella Eyre, Jess Glynne, Kylie Jenner, Perrie Edwards & Jade Thirlwall of Little Mix, Demi Lovato as well as numerous high profile fashion influencers like Aureta, Leanne Lim Walker, Kurt Benz and Helen Anderson. In 2015 a series of collaborative ONLY CHILD x ASOS jewellery collections were launched worldwide exclusively on ASOS.com and became one of ASOS’s fastest selling jewellery brands. ONLY CHILD has also presented seasonal collections around the world including at Premiere Classe at Paris Fashion Week as well as at London Fashion Week in the British Fashion Council Showrooms.
With a heavy focus on unique yet wearable statement pieces, the brand offers a boldly designed unisex range that has always had it’s eclectic inspiration underpinned by the mystery of ancient civilizations, the extra-planetary and the desire to have a good time.
