Previewing our behind the scene shots on our Instagram, the anticipation is finally over. We are revealing the images of how our 5 KD styled up girls have interpreted their stylish personalities throughout the collection their own way. During the week, they came into the studio and chose 2 products of their preference. With the help of the KD team, we captured their street style creations against the street art that surrounds our studio in the creative Baltic Triangle.
Georgia is pretty in pink with Jayda Dress and Perci Coat.
Seventies vibe with Molly in Lana Skirt & Lana Bralet and Alba Jumpsuit
Sporting it up with Kwan in Dolly Dress and Black Fishtail Dress.
Keeping it classic with Beth in Sabrina Dress and Tava Trousers.
Our KD styled up girls have done a fabulous job and received a £50 voucher to spend on the collection. Keep a look out for our scouts in the future for this great, fun and stylish opportunity!
If you remember reading Kirsten’s post I did when she got married to Michael you might remember the special detail that Kirsten used to live on the same street of me, we were childhood friends. My mum made and beaded her communion gown and then I asked my mum to bead the bust on her wedding gown.
Kirsten wanted to go 1920’s style, art deco in her wedding gown. We decided on a white silk crepe back satin fabric for the dress which had a 4m train and Swarovski and pearl beading to be done by hand under the bust and around to the back. The drama of the dress was in the back, carefully draped Swarovski pearls made a stunning detail that lead the eye down to the scooped out back and the full train. Kirsten had a hidden loop to tie the train up when she took to the dancefloor with her little twins, Daisy and Tom.
The one part of the look that didn’t decide on was the veil, this is the exciting part of having a dress designed for you. Towards the end of the bespoke process you can see how the dress takes shape and veils do depend on the shape, style and detail of the dress. We made a toile veil for Kirsten to try, a toile means a mock-up. We tried the veil long and then trimmed it until it finished at the bottom of the spine. This was the perfect length for the perfect dress.
I dressed Kirsten on the day of her wedding and my mum came along to assist me with steaming and pressing the gown. This was such a special moment for us to be part of, as it is for every day dressing the bride in her gown which has taken months in the planning. But both of knowing Kirsten since we were tiny had extra emotions attached.

It’s very nearly the weekend..
My top three for this weekend’s favourite pieces from the collection would be the luxe pvc/jersey combo Yasmin Skirt this skirt should be on everyone’s must-have list. Wear it layered up or with a scuba jersey bustier for a more evening look. In the first picture I am wearing the Makenzie coat with it and my cherry red Louboutins. One tip when wearing the Makenzie or Tiffany Coat is to tie the belt super tight to pull in the waist, this also makes the ruffle puff out more on the hem. In the final picture I am wearing the Marthe Skirt with oops… did I say 3 top picks? Can I squeeze in the Shira Sleeveless Jacket too? It’s my blog and I think I need the Shira in my top picks for this weekend. The wind caught the silk in the picture and it shows off Jessica’s print to perfection! The Shira is a perfect go-to piece, when the season isn’t quite sure whether it wants to be Autumn OR Winter this piece can be worn over a dress or with boyfriend jeans and a leather jacket, Layer-up-Luxury!
The lipstick is from topshop and I have gone for that windswept hair look – deliberately of course.
The lovely bride Laura sent us a snapshot from her wedding day with her 5 friends dressed in the LD Bridesmaid dresses. The LD draped back, the LD bustier and the LD one shoulder dress in lemon have been a runaway success – they are a firm favourite for brides up and down the country. The tailored shape with fluted mermaid style skirt look is cut to flatter and elongate the body.
They come in a variety of colours but this delicious lemon sorbet shade shimmers in the sunshine.
