If you follow our facebook and instagram pages you will know we are on the verge of moving to a new KD HQ. Our new home will be revealed next week when it is all finished. The new space is 3,000 sq ft of showroom/catwalk/manufacturing space.

We will also be expanding our “by appointment only” service which will allow you to book online to have a fitting for our bridal/bridesmaid collections plus our new collections cocktail and city break.

The brand is growing and we want you to share this exciting time with KD. To all of our KD girls who own a dress or two we will be sending out a £55 voucher for you to use against any purchase online (only) as a thank you for being so fabulous! So get stalking your post(person) and wait for the envelope with your unique voucher code. I hear some one ask – why £55? Well that is our lucky number, for our FLASH FRIDAY offers we discount the dress by 55% so we think it only right to give you a voucher worth £55!

HAPPY WEEKEND… it is so close we can almost touch it!

Looking back, editorial model fittings.






Sometimes you strip back the editorial ideas and the dress shines through, this is especially so in this editorial set of pictures from a fitting with our editorial model Carly. Carly was the face of our Bridal Fall 2014 collection and epitomised a modern, fashion conscious bride. These shots from behind the scenes show you how a dress comes to life at a fitting. Nips and tucks on the back train were decided when we could see the dress on our model. This shaping on the back of the gown could not be achieved by flat pattern cutting or sketching in my opinion. I have to see dresses in 3D so I can drape, fold or tuck I guess that is just how my mind works.


Studio Loves









It’s Gary Pepper Girl. We love her on Instagram following her on Facebook or on her website

She has cool Parisian chic down to a perfect art. Her blog let’s you see the beautiful places she travels around the world for her shoots, she is styled to perfection from the short bouncy bob to the geometrically perfect cat-eye flicks. We LOVE HER!

Delectable delights.

We had a visitor this afternoon in the studio – we haven’t seen Kate for months and I hoped when she emailed about popping in that she would bring some jewellery with her. Kate brought a box full of delights from her up coming 2013/4 collection. Cait Jewellery was really popular in the shop and customer’s co-ordinated their dresses with their jewels. Brights and neons dominate this fabulous collection of swarovski adorned pieces. Definitely on my wish list for next year!
