Design time!

There is one day left before the school holidays.....I slightly panicked and spent the day designing and ordering fabrics to add a few more dresses to my collection.
For me, this is a very exciting time as I love designing and looking through all my fabrics swatches. When I at last settle on the gown I am going to make I can hardly wait for the fabric to arrive....roll on tomorrow!

Elie Saab Autumn 2011

This collection is the inspiration of my day. I feel totally excited by the use of fabric, the cut and the exquisite embellishments. I do not think there is a designer out there at the moment who can equal an Elie Saab creation! Saab's use of colour is always so soft and sympathetic to his model, creating an air of pure femininity.

Do you feel inspired?

A night out at the Prom!

Here are a few photos from Flora's prom.
These are just are just two dresses that I made for the occasion....
This stunning red gown for Rachel, is made of Silk Dupion lined and trimmed with black. As you can see it is for her hour glass figure and flares out from the knee. It has a pleated detail around the bodice and a stunning halter neck to finish off the look. Rachel was lovely to work with, she knew exactly what she wanted. I think red was a great colour for her beautiful tanned skin!

Emma, had a very definite choice of dress. It had to be from' Dirty Dancing' fame. Emma loves to dance, so a double Crepe backed Satin with a silk Chiffon over skirt, pulled in at the waist with a Chiffon scarf and flower with a silver broach just finished it off. The choice of colour for Emma was perfect too.

I did not make Flora's dress, as she was very clever and thrifty. She found a stunning Black Lace little number. So, with a little bit of customising to the under bodice and neckline [which actually changed the original look] she was almost ready.We thought it needed a little bit of colour ... so I quickly made a statement clutch bag, from cerise pink Thai Silk, lined with black and trimmed with a huge black button to carry everything that one needs to these events.

I must admit I had a tear in my eye as off she went to the Prom!
