Two women      Two successful careers

One new business

Jackie Lowe and Julia Kitchen have forged successful careers in their different fields but have now decided to create a new business based on their shared passion for design, style and fashion.

Studio 59 will sell our style – jewellery, hats, homewares, curiosities – sharing our love of special but affordable things. We will source ethically and support artisan and craft communities”

Jackie Lowe, founder and design lead Studio 59

Studio 59 is a reaction against the high street. We are against sameness, against poor quality, against exploitation and against uninspiring shops. We will focus on the fabulous South African jewellery but will also offer homewares, hats, artwork and anything else that catches our eye and fits our requirement for affordable, ethical style”

Julia Kitchen, founder Studio 59
