Designer Insider: Autumn Winter 2015 Highlights

This week we have been super busy getting the New collection online, with photoshoots and organising all of the new stock we've had come flooding in from our manufactures. Its so exciting seeing all the months of hard work sit together nicely on a rail!

Some particular favourites so far...(and yes, there is still lots more to come!)

My TOP 5:

 

Julie Fuchsia Prom Skirt - £79

As you may have guessed, I am a bit of a sucker for anything pink! This skirt is both classy and up to the minute on trend, it is both bold and fun with an ultra modern, sophisticated chic look to it. I just LOVE it!

 

 

Jennifer Lace Little Black Dress - £129 

If there's one LBD that you buy this winter...make it this one! I just love the contrast between the heavier lace and the delicate, spindly eyelash Chantilly Lace, finished off perfectly with the pussybow collar and tie. 

 

Hilary Velvet Tartan Pencil Skirt - £79 

I just LOVE this rich deep burgundy tartan, that is made even more sumptuous by the velvet texture. I love the way, the pattern is so subtle, in certain lights you wouldn't even see it, but it adds a depth to an otherwise simple skirt. The pictures really do not do this gorgeous fabric justice...it is hard to capture such an illusive fabric! 

This is perfect for work or for dressing up in the evening.

 

Gold Crystal Clutch Bag - £69

Again, this is another item that photos will never do justice. The sparkle on this little treasure is dazzling and the detail on the clasp is exquisite! I will definitely be taking this out with me as many times as I can warrant this season!

Clear Crystal Choker - £30

No one can deny that chokers are very much back in this season, treat yourself to this beautiful little treasure. Not only will it go with everything, but its "rough diamond" look gives a modern, on trend take on classic costume jewellery.

 

This week I am working on a brand new range of "Exclusive" dresses for those looking for something that bit extra special. Made to measure, these dresses will be made individually by hand, tailored to each customers requirements.

Amongst all of this, we are organising a series of events and viewings, to allow our customers to see and try our new collection, accompanied, of course, by special treats and copious amounts of bubbly!

Designer Insider: London

Last week I was very busy working away on new samples and pulling together the finishing touches on outfits, ready to be photographed this week.

The new collection has a lot of new styles particularly aimed at the eveningwear side of things, with some beautiful embellishments and exquisite detail.

Hand stitched detail

We also had some stunning clutch bags come in, which Im so excited about as they are the perfect accessory to our range of dresses. They will be available to buy online this week.

Over the weekend, I went to London for a friends birthday. We had cocktails in Milk & Honey, Soho to start and had a fantastic night out, sipping on my new favourite cocktail, a Twinkle (Champagne, Elderflower and Gin), and danced the night away!

I wore an outfit from the new collection, a bandage crop top with delicate scalloped eyelash lace edging with a high waisted black pencil skirt. I wore my favourite new cage heels and did my hair, taking inspiration from Margot Robbie in "Focus"

Back in the office today, we are taking photos of all the new collection ready for it to go online this week! So stay tuned!

Designer Insider: Highland Fling

We had a fabulous week in Scotland last week - I think I consumed my weight in Smoked Salmon and whiskey (wine) - so,  finding it slightly hard to resume business as usual in the office this morning! But, super excited to get the photos up from our mini shoot last week and start getting some more of our Autumn Winter collection online!! 

 

Here's a sneak preview:

Let us know what you think!

Designer Insider: Scotland

This week I am in Scotland for our annual family get away. Our cottage in the Highlands is set in breathtaking scenery surrounded by a loch and stunning panoramic views.

We spend the days exploring, revisiting our favourite spots and discovering new, before sitting in front of the fire pit with a glass of champagne and a tray of local smoked salmon canapés, watching the most beautiful sunsets develop.

We seem to have brought the weather with us and have so far been enjoying glorious blue sky and even been sunbathing! Unheard of in Scotland!!

 

   

  

Last week we had some of our lovely new Jewellery come in to stock, which will be up on the website next week. We are also planning a mini shoot this week with some of our eveningwear which I will be sure to post behind the scenes shots on our Instagram!

 

Though Jane and I are out of the office this week, we are still on our emails, so you can still reach us!

Designer Insider: New Website

I had a rare bit of time off this weekend as I decided it was time to do a bit of redecorating and have a bit of a spring clean! Its so satisfying to have a good clear out and redecorate so everything looks fresh and new again!

 

I caught up with my cousins on Friday, visiting their lovely new home near Bristol and had a glorious day yesterday at my friends birthday bbq. The weather was just perfect and we sat in the sun all afternoon sipping on prosecco and elderflower cocktails and stuffing our faces with delicious homemade burgers!

 

 

Today I am back in the studio and have just had some gorgeous new fabrics arrive which I will be whipping up into some new samples today!

 

This week, expect to see some more new arrivals online, We have some gorgeous new eveningwear dresses in the pipeline which will be perfect for all the Hunt Balls and seasonal events coming up! This one in particular is my favourite so far and is now available to buy online. Its the kind of dress you are a bit unsure about...until you put it on and it literally makes you feel like a million dollars!

Designer Insider: Regatta

This weekend, I went down to stay with friends living in Shaldon, Devon, to watch the Regatta. It was fabulous weather and we sunbathed on the beach, Pimms in hand, laughing at the racing boats crashing in to each other and nearly sinking!

 

In the evening we enjoyed some Delicious cocktails and champagne in a local bar and joined in with the festivities in the local pub, enjoying a live band playing mash ups of old school classics.

 

With a slightly sore head, I returned to the office to get on with some final tweaks to our amazing new website – launching this week – and carried on with work on a fabulous matt sequin gold dress for our new collection.

 

Im so excited about this week, I always get impatient at the end of a season, when we are waiting for stock to come in and photos to be edited and the last collection is in sale. But this week we can finally start releasing some NEW STUFF!! Our new website will be up! Our new samples will be underway and NEW stock will be filling our rails! Everything is NEW NEW NEW and Sparkling!!!

 

I just LOVE the winter season will all the deep tones and sequins and sparkle, it almost compensates for the end of the summer and all the bright, light fabrics… but lets not be too hasty! I for one, am still hanging on to the last shreds of summer and don my favourite little dresses as many times as possible!
