Oxford Ball

Our lovely client needed a dress for an Oxford ball back in March. She looks gorgeous!

She is wearing our black scallop lace bodice, accompanied by a soft pleated gold full skirt, perfect for dancing in!

Cannes Film Festival 2016

It was that time of year again. All the celebrity’s were out in force, wearing their designer frocks to the nines.

Chloe (left), wore our black Jovani with mesh panels front and back. To the premiere of the BFG.

They all look very red carpet!

Wedding

Our lovely customer went to a wedding and wore our orange, with black beading full length jersey dress.

Just gorgeous!

Windsor Castle

Julia and her partner attended a function at Windsor Castle earlier this month.

She can be seen wearing our new, silver crystal v-neck, with black jersey dress.

Very chic!

Gold & Black Goddess Gown

I love Ruth in this gold and black goddess gown. She wore it to her important black tie event which took place in London. The skirt is pleated, for the swooshing effect.

Classic Black Dress

The demure Rachel here wore our low back black jersey gown that ties at the back and hangs loosely. Worn to her leavers ball this Monday evening.

Such a grand photo, we hope she’ll be back in the future!

Winter White Gala

600 hundred guests embarked on Kensington Palace for their charity ball, Winter Whites Gala, which took place on Tuesday 26th November. An event which raises money for the charity, Centrepoint, for homeless young people. An astounding 1million was raised on the night.

Celebrity guests included, Prince William, Jon Bon Jovi, and Taylor Swift. This handsome trio pictured, were lucky enough to attend this event, and boy did they enjoy it! The two ladies hired their whole outfits from us, and we were more than happy to help make them sparkle for their winter ball.

We’re all Guilty of it!

Of what I hear you cry? Of wearing so much black! Yes, this bold statement comes from my observation this morning on the tube to work. As I peeled my ‘black’ coat off whilst sat down to reveal my very bright, slightly bold, pink jumper. I realised I was the only one on the carriage wearing something that wasn’t black, blue (very dark blue) or a deep grey. And I thought to myself, why as a country do we wear so much black?

Maybe we take comfort in wearing black and dark tones because we like to go unnoticed? Or is it because the weather, generally, is so damned depressing it changes how we feel towards our clothes. You know like, comfort over fashion?! However I am very guilty of this – my week will start with me wearing mostly black, then throughout the week day by day my items tend to get brighter or even tighter, which generally means I’m going out meeting friends.

Many clients come in to our studio and always say to me, ‘NO black please’ but then you show them a great evening gown in black, they try it on, love it and generally always leave with that black dress they tried to dismiss before they came in here.

Black is so common, you’ll hardly be picked out of a crowd, there will easily be a hundred black dresses at a function. People like to blend in. Some don’t of course, but I bet even those gregarious types like to wear black during the week when they’re not partying!

They say you can tell when someone is recovering from an illness because they start to add colour to their daily ensemble, which means they are starting to feel more confident with themselves and don’t feel they want to hide away anymore.

I like to try and make a point of wearing patterns or colour during the week, as I truly believe it changes how you feel about yourself. It’s so easy to just pull on a pair of black leggings or jeans and throw on a dark coloured top/jumper. But ladies you should try mixing up your wardrobe and start adding colour, even if it’s just a couple of key items: like a scarf, pair of tights, or your shoes?

Let’s not be guilty of blending in anymore!
