The Old Curiosity Shop vs. Margo Selby vs. Oki-ni


With its shop having roots back to 1567 and a Charles Dickens book title, The Old Curiosity Shop collaborated with award winning British textile designer Margo Selby on these exclusive Oki-ni jackets.



Creative Director John Skelton explains, 'The jacket shape had been created by the Old Curiosity Shop's designers in a jersey fabrication which looked and felt fantastic so we bought some. Then they showed us some scarfs which were in such strong and interesting fabrics which we also bought. Then we thought, these jackets would be amazing in these fabrics, so, we decided to try producing one. When the sample came back it was obvious that we should produce these in a few different fabric options and we decided to give it a bit more of a summer feel by creating some oversized shorts to go with them. oki-ni is the only place in the world selling this product and there isn’t a lot of it.'

Right now Creativo Surface Design is looking to work with freelance textile designers to design for the different apparel markets we serve. We are working at the moment on putting together the collections for next year trade shows. Just to give you an idea, we have boys, girls, juniors, women’s and men’s collections (swimwear, street wear…etc.)

If you have something under your portfolio, that it is not older than a year, please send us JPEGs in order for us to see and determine if they are a good fit to what our customers are looking for. We are working on Spring-Summer 2011 right now.

Just to let you know you, we keep the designer’s names and contact info strictly confidential. So NO worries. In our company we signed a confidentiality agreement so we do not disclose your name and info.
