The winner will be announced on the evening of the 21st of September 2012. The prize is £50 worth of Eustratia products.

More chances to win a free accessory will be given to those who attend the event. I’ve put a lot of effort into arranging the show and expect it to be a fun day. More info on the concept and inspiration will be included in a future post.

Good luck to everyone who enters!




Eustratia competition, June.

I was thinking it was about time for an other competition but all these new facebook rules have been confusing me so I thought it would be best to launch it off here.

I wasn’t sure what to give away so the prize will be £100 worth of stock of your choice from! This also means it will be made to measure to fit you.

Anniversary giveaway!

My label, Eustratia has now officially been trading for a year so I’m going a little giveaway to celebrate!

I’m thankful for all the support I’ve had throughout the last year from friends and people who enjoy my work. I hope by label will continue to grow and give me the opportunity to make more of my ideas come to life.

I thought it would be fitting that the prize be items from Eustratia so I have included a selection of accessories worth just over £100.

  • Black and white striped hair bow (medium)
  • black pussy bow neck tie
  • 3-piece Perspex set. Short antler trophy necklace (used in the aesthetic contradiction logo), long arctic fox necklace and moth pin.
  • standard fingerless gloves
  • bow cuff
  • striped folded flower
  • The winner will also receive a discount code granting them 20% off their next order from Eustratia.

I tried to pick a popular colour combo but there may be replacements available for the bow cuff and flower if any other colours we have in stock would suit you better.
