Coming soon …

We’re so excited to be working on some glamorous new designs to add to our existing collection.

For our new silk collection we’ve found the most beautiful natural silk with a linen type weave which is available in an array of luscious colours, in particular rich blues, corals and yellows – key trends for S/S 2012. Perfect for day dresses and jackets this cloth hangs beautifully and is wonderful to wear.

In addition, we have sourced some beautiful patterned silks from a mill right here in England. They can produce cloth to our own design and colour specifications,  so look out for some spectacular cocktail dresses and even an evening dress or two!

Customers have also been asking us for a jacket to wear with our sleeveless designs and we’re going to be introducing a neat little cropped one which we can produce in a variety of colours and cloths.

Our first patterns have been made and we will be fitting  them on our models next  week –  so watch this space. X

Sizzling in Sicily

We visited Sicily over the summer  – it was so hot we could hardly bare to expose our skin to the sun and cowered under big hats and umbrellas most of the day. We were glad to have Marilyn, Lana and Joan along for easy but elegant, cool dressing for the evenings.  

We just love the way Italians promenade – all ages stroll up and down the ‘Via’ every evening until late, all in their best clothes. It’s so charming – just like being in a giant fashion show, watching and being watched. 

Just one tip should you decide to visit the island,  Mt Etna is active pretty much all the time and sometimes spews black smoke into the air – not very helpful if you happen to bewearing a white (Lana) dress!
