The April dress is ready for customer try-ons, is steamed, hanging up and looking lush. This dress has been sewed up over some time; step by step and hand stitched in places too. I am really happy with the outcome and I think the fit and feel to it will make a happy bride. The inspiration for this dress was taken from a Paris visit to the Muse d’ Orsay and seeing the impressionists images of women in the dress of the era, the dress also references historic design such as the 1920’s silhouette and is meant to frame the ladies figure elegantly for that big day.
The April Dress Spring / Summer 2020
Its features are fluted half sleeves which are with a wrinkled satin fabric manipulation, a modest v neckline with silk organza rouges, a buttoned front bodice with a hip line for the 20’s feel, the dress is made from a fine silk twill, with a trumpet shaped skirt portion, and a crisp hemline, a shaped back bodice nape-to-waist line, and a small to medium train all in natural silk and feels so beautiful to touch and wear.
The dress is in keeping with the brand ethos being made in the UK, made with natural silks, and being an ethically friendly company in its business practices. The style of all my dresses are contemporary, classic, edgy, feminine and elegant. I like to focus on the way the garment would make one feel and look, being careful in how they are designed and using a careful selection of fabrics to achieve this.
I have a collection of dresses available soon for try-ons, made in average women’s sizes, if you find something you like but it doesn’t fit, I have an onsite tailoring service for baseline adjustments and more complicated fittings need to be made – I can make referrals.
