Hey there, I’m Ingrid
I work full time handcrafting unisex statement accessories from my makeshift studio in Devon. Obsessed with fashion, music and art, my work is fundamentally inspired by street culture, graffiti and skateboarding.
Graduating with a Fashion & Textiles degree from University in Bristol in the 90’s, I started out designing streetwear and became connected to the cities reinventing underground music and art scenes.
After many years working as a creative window stylist and visual merchandiser for some of the UK's most famous fashion and interior design brands, I decided to set up my own company. Ingfamous exists as my creative outlet to make 'cool shit', drawing on a lifetime of influences from graffiti, fashion and skateboard countercultures.
My addiction to street culture is at the heart of everything I do, so I choose to work with traditional graffiti techniques, spray paint, paint markers and acrylics, while using materials more commonly associated with skateboarding such as plywood and grip tape. I love taking these raw elements to craft beautifully designed one of a kind statement pieces.
Commission work welcome.
