Moodboards for my 2016 collection

I’ve pulled together a few moodboards for my 2016 collection, compiling images of beautiful things that inspire me. I still love the vintage silhouette of 50’s prom dresses with petticoats, as well as the slinky silhouettes of the 70’s and I’ve teamed this with my favourite colour palettes at the moment; lemon yellows and blush pinks.
I’ve also taken inspiration from powerful women from history and mythology, and have let these images influence my designs. And you can’t have a bridal moodboard without flowers! Hydrangeas and gypsophilas will always be my favourite, they were my wedding flowers, but I really really love freesias right now! Also included a few vintage brides, I’d love to style a shoot one day with these 1920s waves and lace veils, so gorgeous.

Moodboarding…

Pulling together some ideas and inspiration for my 2015 bridesmaid collection with a few quick mood boards. I love pastels and vintage, full circle silhouettes so definitely including some classic prom dresses next year. Going to include lots of lace too (my favourite). Super excited about working on more complex constructions next year too and designing corseted bridal gowns. Can’t wait to get designing!

Featured on the Warehouse Blog – Talent Spot

Today is the last day of my two week installation at the flagship Warehouse store on Argyll Street! Good times. I’ve dragged along everyone I know to come and take a look it, and stood by the window shouting at passers by that I MADE THIS. ๐Ÿ˜† Alas, all good things must come to an end, and the Christmas Warehouse window goes in on Monday, looking forward to seeing what’s new ๐Ÿ’•
