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!
