The mood is definitely hot, bright and colourful as the days lengthen, and the warmth of summer approaches. Gorgeous new tweeds and prints are arriving daily, and I’m enjoying creating exciting new designs with them. In addition to being busy with new designs for lots of special occasions this summer, I’m very flattered to have […]
In February we embrace love, and romance – at least in fashion! With the lengthening days, it feels as though Spring is fast approaching, and with it a riot of pretty, feminine lipstick colours that are a joy to see. For weddings, the light airy boho and vintage looks are still strong, but I’m adding […]
Happy New Year! It’s been a speedy start to 2017, and I can’t quite believe we’re more than half way through January already! I’m really excited because my new clothes rails arrived last week, so the new showroom is coming to life, and presenting my designs in the way they should be seen. I’m looking […]
It’s hurtling towards the end of 2016, and I feel my feet have barely touched the ground this year! There are so many exciting projects to look forward to, and I feel totally unprepared for Christmas. The first is my very long overdue new website… Pete and I discussed the plan and design four years […]
My pop-up is up, so we’re on the move again – but this time for good! I have really enjoyed my two years in Chelsea Green, and will miss my fellow shopkeepers enormously – it’s been a joy to work alongside experts, passionate about the wonderful products they supply and produce.
It’s almost impossible to believe that another Christmas time is fast approaching, and I’m so far behind this year… Not one mince pie, panetone or glass of mulled wine has passed my lips as yet, which could be due to too much work, and insufficient play – or perhaps more the fact that I over-indulged far too early last year, and vowed never to do the same again!
Now the days are shorter, and there’s a definite chill in the air, it’s recognition that the long summer days (at least in Britain), are but memories of this year, and the comfort season is well and truly here. As the nights draw in, and winter coats emerge from the backs of wardrobes, there is no doubt that wearing sumptuous layerings of cashmere, wool, and fur hats and accessories make autumn such a pleasure.
Summer holidays are now all but lovely memories for most of us, as a new school year begins, and the approach of autumn, with cooler mornings and evenings. There are many ways to be reminded it’s autumn again, and I’m looking forward to working with my favourite fabrics, to layer, and keep the chill at bay!
