Porta, Brighton – Plastic Fantastic!

February 26, 2013

Last Thursday I was lucky enough to attend a press event at Porta, in Brighton. This sweet shop is packed full of gems; scarves, jewellery, bags – everything is so beautiful! The evening was dedicated to a new collection of laser-cut jewellery, created by some very talented designers indeed – including designosaurYEAH, Maggie Angus, Sugar Jones and Rosa Pietsch.

I fell in love with the interior details as soon as I stepped into the cosy room downstairs, which was filled with a handful of the designers and other bloggers. I can’t resist a good mounted skull! The room has recently been renovated, which means more space for even more beautiful products.

If you’re ever in Brighton, do pop in and take a peek at this treasure-trove of goodies! I wish I had some spare pennies to buy a few (dozen) pieces, but next month I will definitely be treating myself to something beautiful. I love the Pavilion necklace made by designosaurYEAH, and got chatting to Karli (one half of the brilliant design team) who was so lovely.

Porta stock plenty of other designers – their scarves particularly caught my eye (fingers crossed they stock some which aren’t made of silk!) and I really love the specs necklace – I can never resist the combination of black and gold.

    I’m sure I’ve popped in there when I’ve been in Brighton but I love all the shops in that area and I think I go in so many I lose track! Looks like some beautiful pieces!

      I think you would love the shop, I’m sure you must have popped in! If not – definitely go next time you’re down and have a peek at the refurbished basement!
