South London now has its own version of Forbes’s famous 30 Under 30 influencer list.
The 30 South of 30 recognizes those under 30 years of age, from a variety of different professions, who are all putting South London on the map.
The list features six from the borough of Southwark. Here they are:
1. Kai & Amanda from Att Pynta
Peckham-based duo Att Pynta is known for their Scandinavian-inspired interior decor and their online boutique. The two have been featured in Vogue and Stylist, and they also run a design column in the London Evening Standard where they share design advice with fellow Londoners.
2. Painter Maddie Rose Hills
Maddie Rose Hills is an emerging artist – yet she is already becoming acclaimed in the field. She graduated from UWE in 2015 with a First Class Honours in Drawing and Applied Arts. She specialises in painting large scale canvases that combine masses of textures and colours.
3. Designer and illustrator Ocki Magill
Ocki Magill has been a graphic designer and illustrator since she left Central St Martins in 2008. Since then, she has worked for MTV, TOPSHOP, MINI, and Gottwood Festival. Her studio is in Peckham. She also runs Blue Shop Cottage, a converted shop space made to support the creative community.
4. Georgia Larsen of Dora Larsen lingerie
Georgia Larsen is the founder and the owner of the Dora Larsen lingerie line. The designs are focused on using colour, especially since the rest of the industry is saturated with black, beige, and other neutrals. Georgia has been acknowledged by the fashion industry and profiled as “one to watch” for her stand-out designs.
5. Painter Florence Hutchings
Florence Hutchings is an abstract artist and painting student at Slade School of Fine Art. Born in 1996, she has already had her work exhibited across the UK, including high-profile venues, such as the Saatchi Gallery.
6. Rosie Davies of Lifestyle and Fashion Agency
In 2013, Rosie Davies founded the Lifestyle and Fashion Agency, which is based in South London. Rosie created LFA with the purpose of cutting the costs of traditional marketing – and the organisation is now an award-winning PR and social media for lifestyle, fashion, and homeware brands.
