Ever since I was a baby I received the nickname 'Diddy'.  My brother, Cam, use to ramble on about this person Diddy constantly.  Unbeknown to my parents that it was I that he spoke of! One day whilst I cried out in my cot my darling brother, 18 months older, called out "Diddy cry, Diddy cry!".  The penny then dropped! Louise was Diddy! perhaps it was a little easier to say than my given name?  None the less my family and close friends have always known me to be 'Diddy', unless I was in trouble I was 'Louise!'.   So thus is how 'diddy-stich' was born, a new child label to Stichbury which will be the experimental and creative label which will have many themes and stories appear as I explore new techniques and small limited collections.   

I lived and breathed for art growing up, in the art room I spent my lunch hours.  But somewhere along the way I realised I needed to be doing three dimensional art, creating something more hands on.  Fashion then collided with my art to create wearable art and Stichbury was born! 

Over a decade later I am still doing what I love.  It is not luck, I took a leap of faith as my motto was 'you don't know unless you try', so I did and I am so grateful I followed my heart!  I can not imagine doing anything but what I do.
