Inspirations - Gina Lollobrigida and other sirens.

Follow Alexandra's board Gina DeJoJo on Pinterest.

Gina DeJoJo (inspired by the fabulous Gina Lollobrigida with a sprinkle of Ava Gardner and Sophia Loren) will be the next guest to visit the Alfoxton hotel and will inspire a gorgeous early Autumn wardrobe of ravishing gowns. 

These will be for slightly curvier figures with low cut necklines (a must for a bust!), nipped in waists (get your corset out) and pencil cut hip hugging skirts.

Summer sports dresses


Summer sports dresses inspired by 1920s county house games. These are my first designs after the trip to Alfoxton and viewing the overgrown tennis court. These little sports dresses in crisp white cottons and navy stripes would suit a game nicely imagining the court had just been built.
Coming to the shop tomorrow.

Alfoxden Park House Hotel

Alfoxton Park Hotel

 Photos of the Alfoxden Park Hotel or Alfoxton House. Holford Somerset. The old hotel sign in the porch, along with a tonne of old post. 

Alfoxton Park Hotel Sign

The classic view of the hotel, that wood would warm a house for a year! 

The front entrance of the Hotel with a lovely climbing rose. This could stay. All the windows have gorgeous wooden shutters. Except one on the first floor left. That looks like a squatters curtain?
