"Mimi" was looking beautiful hanging up at the launch of the Bridal Prep Rooms at Brockworth court this weekend. It's the perfect way to spend your wedding morning being pampered along with your wedding party if you are getting hitched near by!
I took an afternoon out from the studio last week and popped to London to visit the Christian Dior exhibition currently showing at the Victoria & Albert museum.
It was beyond spectacular.
Some of the dresses on show I have only ever drooled over in fashion books, to actually see them in the flesh was magical. This is the V&A's most popular exhibition of all time and I can see why. But hurry as it closes it's doors on September 1st (I might even go again! ).

Thanks So GLos for a great night at the SGGLA awards at Gloucester cathedral. Obviously gutted not to win but happy to have been nominated and to enjoy such a lovely evening.
P.S. amazing goodie bag!
At the end of last year, I had the pleasure of working with a student who was in her final year at Birmingham City University studying on the BA Fashion degree. For her final year project she needed to collaborate with a company in the industry and she chose me!
The project required her to create two full outfits from designs taken from my collection. The objective being to take these 2 garments through the manufacturing process, from initial sketches to fully finished pieces.
The project ran from January through to May, and during that time she made various studio visits for fittings and manufacturing advice (and tea)!
Since finishing her degree in the summer she has started her first job as a design assistant’s at a manufactures, well done Sade! x

Earlier in the summer my cape-sleeved wedding dress 'Poppy' was lucky enough to be chosen for this gorgeous wedding shoot. Taking place at 'Dryhill Farm'; a brand new cotswold wedding venue, it was the perfect setting to celebrate the English county side.
'Rob Tarren' was in charge of the lens, 'The Flower Girls' for the props and flowers, 'Wedding Paint' for the make-up, Wave Marie Baldwin was the model and yours truly for the frock! (As featured on Whimsical Wonderland Weddings)
