Milk Tooth LDN was created by Leyton-based husband and wife team, Ernestina and Mark Potts, having seen a gap in the market for beautiful and unique, yet accessible jewellery, creating the only fashion house dedicated solely to statement earrings.
The jewellery has been an instant success with press and influencers alike, including Alexa Chung, Callie Thorp, Munroe Bergdorf, Tavi Gevinson and Freddie Harrel, helping Milk Tooth build a solid fanbase reaching Tokyo, LA, New York, Paris, Berlin, Sydney and beyond.
THE BOX is a 3000 sq ft venue home to a thriving fashion district, which serves to support retail events including sample sales, pop-ups and product launches. The space also offers experiential activities such as workshops, brand talks, DJs and fashion shows.
Founded by female entrepeneur, Natalie Yaffe, the space acts as a carefully curated edit of the best brands; from Aries and YMC, to Prada and House of Hackney.
Striving to offer an alternative to fast fashion, the space aims to give people the oppurtunity to buy from the highest quality designers at a similar price point to the high street; in the forms of covetable pieces that will last a life time and avoid landfill as a result. The space has cultivated a community of dedicated customers who visit every weekend.
