Layer Me Beautiful!

Layer Me Beautiful!

My goal as a clothing designer is to help you create a wardrobe that makes you look and feel your best. I also want you to have a wardrobe that gives you lots of flexibility, making the most of your clothing investment. My approach for achieving these goals is layering.

Bolero! What a great word, bringing to mind excitement and romance. My new Bolero Jacket in a textured cotton/linen blend with a jacquard weave hopefully will add excitement to your wardrobe (and perhaps a little romance 😊).

You're probably coming to the conclusion that I like layers - you're right! 😊 Mixing and matching styles gives you lots of flexibility, letting you put together the perfect outfit whatever the occasion. For this spring I've created my Shawl Collar Wrap Coat in a beautiful ivory-coloured cotton/linen blend.

The cochineal insect (Dactylopius coccus) is a gift from nature. It creates a glorious pink. Pink is often associated with love and romance. Often thought of as a feminine colour, pink is associated with the qualities of softness, kindness, nurturance, and compassion.

Nature is a refuge where we connect with our essence and open our senses, seeing, hearing, smelling and feeling more vibrantly. And we revel in the stunning colours of nature - greens, yellows, blues, reds, pinks, and, yes, the colour orange.

For anyone who has had the pleasure of dyeing with indigo there is a beauty and magic to this natural dye, derived from the indigo plant. If you work with indigo, you don't just dye with it, you have a relationship with it.
