Love this…

Dear Blogger

I wanted to introduce you to my label Glovedup Gloves.
Pioneering creator of fashion-forward fingerless gloves since 2001;
I started the business to put gloves back onto the fashion agenda.

8 years on, and a glance in the fashion mags,
or at all the fingerless mitts on the AW09/10 catwalks;
Alexander McQueen, Armani Privé, Chanel, Fendi, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton,
and you’d have to agree that either I saw into the future, or I helped make it happen.

Worn by Anna Piaggi, Dita Von Teese, Kylie Minogue, Lady Gaga, La Roux, Madonna, Peaches (the original not Geldof)
Photographed by Mario Testino, Miles Aldridge, Solve Sundsbo, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh
Styled by Arianne Phillips, Lucinda Chambers, Patti Wilson, Karl Templer
And featured in i-D, Harpers Bazaar, Numéro, Tatler , Vogue (UK, Italia, Nippon, Russia), W, among many others

I work alone; a mega-multi-tasker.
And I make most of the gloves myself.
I fact I do everything Glovedup myself;
the press, photography, website (, and all the dull jobs too.
It’s a DIY endeavour and I do it for glove not money.

I sell exclusively online at
Shipping gloves all over the world, not masses, indeed not really enough!

What an inspiration. Here are some of Laura Shepherd’s lovely gloves…
