petal & pins

petal & pins is  a small design studio based in Tasmania, Australia founded in 2012 by husband and wife team Sandra and Simon Alcorn.  The studio creates original greeting cards, art prints and accessories designed by Sandra with a fashion sensibility and a touch of whimsy.

"As a fashion designer with a studio looking out on to a slightly unkempt but enchanting garden, it was only a matter of time until my passion for flowers and design intertwined to become petal & pins.

I love to step into my garden to pause for thought, feel the warmth of the sun, or pick a few flowers and it was in one of those moments that I created the first petite dress from flowers.

I take delight in the ephemeral nature of designing with flowers and the photos I take of the dresses are keepsakes of those moments.

These miniature flower dresses feature on our signature range of greeting cards and art prints I call the Garden Fairy's Wardrobe."
