Stallholder Spotlight: Oh, hello

‘Oh, hello’, the collection of ‘humanimal’ brooches by Sistha Halim allows you to release your inner animal in the most creative of ways. The humanistic animal designs bring to mind the drawings of the Art Spiegelman.

‘Cute and quirky’ is how Sistha describes her range, and we can’t help but agree with her. Sistha draws her inspiration from vintage markets, trips to the zoo and nature, as well as style icons such as Zooey Deschanel and Florence Welch. Happy to work with most materials, Sistha is most excited when she comes across unusual or vintage buttons.

Oh, hello’ will be the welcome cry of Sistha on the 21st of April when she takes part in this year’s KickstART Youth Markets. So come along and you might find yourself taking home a little animal friend.
