Summer Collection

Ethnic Prints and Folky Fabrics.

For the summer I wanted to create a collection that was vibrant and casual but using some more traditional fabrics. The lovely Chloe is my model and the award winning Naomi from Namnam’s did the face painting.

South American Cloth.

This was a table runner that became this easy fit dress.

African Print.

This lovely piece of fabric was used as a curtain by my ex housemate Rebecca. When she moved out I re-purposed it into an A-line dress. Apparently the print is for a women’s vote  campaign.

Baggy Trousers.

This fabric was salvaged from a pair of trousers that I unpicked. I love the vibrant colours of this print.

Indian Embroidery.

This piece of cloth just came to me, like most bits of fabric do. Not sure if it used to be anything in a previous life.  There was just enough to make this cheeky number out of it.

Bed Cover.

This was an Indian cotton bed throw that I cut in half and made two dresses from. Boned for extra support.
