Nik Southern founded Grace & Thorn in 2011, beginning her journey from a studio on the Kingsland Road, Dalston. Born from Nik’s desire to create florals that defied all traditions and rules, Grace & Thorn’s naturalist and asymmetrical style has gathered a cult following amongst Londoners and brands alike. Grace and Thorn’s approach reflects the constant movement and evolution of design, bringing together the contemporary and the classic with unique combinations of texture and colour. No two pieces are ever the same. Grace & Thorn opened the doors to its first shop in September 2014, on the Hackney Road.
