I made a promise to myself this year to branch out & try new things with my designs, so when I finally decided to get my designs printed onto fabric & have them sewn up into unique dresses, I was a little nervous & hugely excited!
For my second dress I wanted to go a little simpler than the first design I had chosen & I've always thought that my 'Flower Bomb' design would look lovely on a dress fabric. The design has a lot more space which allows the motifs to really stand out.
Again I was blown away by the quality & service I received from Fashion Formula, & honestly can't sing their praises enough. For this design I chose a textured crepe material, as recommended by Alex at Fashion Formula, & it's such a wonderful material that really makes my design pop.
Again I used Elizabeth from The Create Workshop to sew up my dress design & the brief for this dress was a little different than the previous. I adore maxi dresses so it was a no brainer to go with that style again but I wanted the shoulders to be a bit unique & different this time. The cold shoulder trend is so popular at the moment & I really wanted to incorporate this into the design. Elizabeth did such a wonderful job with the brief & I even ended up wearing the dress to a wedding!
After a meeting in my studio with my studio manager Kelly & PR assistant Holly (& a couple of wines), we thought it would be a nice idea to work through the alphabet & name the designs as they are made.
Moving on to B, I introduce you to...
Featuring my 'Flower Bomb' design.
You can always see sneak peeks of what I'm up to on my Instagram. Let me know what you think of the dress. Is there a favourite design of mine that you have that you think would work well? Let me know!
