Stephanie Macdonald-Walker

Owner / creative director of social enterprise – Watch This Space and Designer / maker of label SMWalker, spent the first year after graduating in 2011 featuring in national and international galleries, solo exhibitions and fashion weeks and then set up a pop-up shop in Leicester city centre, testing the concept of an independent art, fashion and accessories outlet. Success led to ‘Watch This Space’, which now supports hundreds of independent artists and designer makers locally and nationally. Its ethos is to support British based designer makers that hand-make their craft. Stephanie is also the in-house designer, working on the shop floor creating bespoke pieces for customers.
