Founder and Designer of Matchstick Jewellery, Louise Carter was born in London and lives between Oxfordshire and London. Her life in fashion and design began 17 years ago when she was first recruited as Office Junior for an International brand building their UK market. As both a gifted businesswoman and stylist, she quickly progressed to spearhead their UK expansion as well as overseeing their art direction and styling for all photographic imagery. After 8 years Louise left to set up her own consultancy where she would successfully help overseas brands establish themselves in the UK.
Louise became a full time employee at the British Fashion Council In 2008 and was made Special Projects Manager, which utilised her business skills in buyer relations, exhibition sales and sponsorship as well as design and production talents. In 2009, Louise was appointed Head of Events and took the lead on the creative planning and environment surrounding London Fashion Week’s move to Somerset House. As part of this role, Louise took on the management of the British Fashion Awards and was responsible for the planning and delivery of the 25th Anniversary Celebrations.
In 2011, Louise was appointed Head of Development to look at opportunities to drive forward new and existing activity at the British Fashion Council. Louise Carter is recognised as an opinion former within the fashion industry as well as a visionary creative with their finger firmly on the London Fashion Pulse.
Louise left the British Fashion Council June 2012 to launch her own brand Matchstick Jewellery, a collection of charm pendants that reflects Louise’s personal life and her deep belief that the most precious things in life are the most simple and that home is where the heart is.
