UV dress by Alexandra King

I was very lucky to have been given a dress for my birthday made by and as a gift from fabulous designer Alexandra King. It may be the favourite thing in my possesion. And as if it couldnt get better the pattern on the fabric is in UV paint. She has also used the same fabric for a very cute tea dress here. Such a talented designer, I'm very very lucky to have worked with her

Velvet is one of the most luxurious yet comforting materials and can be worn in many different ways. For an evening out to dinner a fitted velvet gown speaks nothing but glamour. Velvet is perfect on a date as the fabric catches the light in a room in an eye catching and sensual way but in the colder/winter months velvet skirts and turtle neck crops are perfect for in the office or general day wear. Pair with a leather jacket to make it more casual or a blazer for work. Cara Delevigne shows a perfect example of how tailored velvet can be femenine and glam.

'Her name was New York'

I planned on posting these photos a couple months back but I've been busy/distracted (excuses, excuses I know) Just a few photos from some of the best days of my life so far in Washington and New York in October. Although America and the UK are similar in their Western styles it was interesting to see the people of New York each with their different take on city chic. Note to self: return to the states when I'm rich and famous

Gingham outfit shoot



After creating this outfit with Alexandra King on work experience I then developed the project to be used in my portfolio. In this shoot I attempted to convey the different ways in which the outfit could be worn whilst styling the shoot in the same way as would have been done in the 90s or 50s. I have now added a 'portfolio projects' page to my blog which you can find below the princess seam header at the top of the page.
