Opera Rose


Today I commented on Holly Willoughby’s style for The Daily Star in an article by Samantha Bartlett. Holly maintains a close relationship with her fans by regularly blogging her looks from high street brands on Instagram. Fashion over the past 10 years has drawn a lot from alternative culture and individuation, and it is refreshing to find Holly natural, healthy body shape and beauty beloved by the nation. I wonder if the royal weddings this year have encouraged a move back to modern sophistication and romantic tradition? Her natural, feminine glamour and approachable style means that she is beloved by the nation, and a Style Queen - go girll!


Opera Rose

'Between candlelights and dusk dark velvet knights, drinking from cut glass lips under stained light skies. Watch this world with gleaming, glittering eyes, they say there are still great stories to be told...'

This charming golden cocktail dress is designed for hot summer beaches, tropical flowers and twilight, with the heat of the sun still twinkling on sandy skin. It is the kind of dress which is filled with memories, strewn pearls, kisses, gifts of pink roses in gilted opera boxes. 

Made entirely using reclaimed materials the stories have been preserved within the sparkles and the fairies are never far away. Even framed on a wall, a golden hand reaches towards a window, a bell twinkles from a distant star, a dancer twirls and lifts her body to the sky, flowers ripple under the wings of a southern storm of butterflies tracing the petal coasts. 

Bespoke couture dress from £1200.00  - this features handbeaded butterflies, handmade roses, diamonds and crystals on diamond patchwork, intricate lace and 1000 memories.

This dress will feature as part of the 'Fairytales' themed collection at St Andrews's University, Scotland with Label Magazine staging at Rufflets Hotel on 13th April 2018
