Inspired the glamourous Great Gatsby film stills we have been putting the finishing touches to the “8 Dresses” collection.
Sequins and silks in the most luscious shades make this collection of gowns pretty special.
To wet your appetites here are some studio shots of ideas we had when coming up with the collection.
Can’t wait to share!

Here is the video from my friend’s wedding, I featured it on the blog a little while ago and I know how much everyone liked it.
Sarah’s 1920’s themed wedding on Saturday was such a sweet day. Sarah’s attention to detail was obvious in the bridesmaid’s twenties style finger curls and blushed cheeks, the girls gave home made cake-pops to each guest as they arrives at the Sefton Park Palm House in Liverpool. Each cake-pop had a little tag saying “I DO”.
Sarah wore a lace dress with pearl buttons down the back, her dark hair was in a chic up do with ringlets softening the look. A dash of red lipstick and a unique bouquet made her look like a contemporary art-deco diva. Ollie, the groom wore a petrol blue suit with the attention to detail being a lemon crotched style tie, gold tie pin and gold cufflinks.
The day was finished with a 20’s style band she met in Manchester’s Northern Quarter and 3 flapper style dancing girls.
Loving Jessica’s finger adornments – she has an art deco style one which is my mothers from a long time ago and when either of us wear it it always gets comments. The others are vintage finds and the index finger is from H&M. Secretly channeling Karl Lagerfeld here.
