The latest Bridal collection has had the last thread cut and now I can share this inspirations and sketches behind the new gowns.

The collection will be titles 'decades' and features a design from each decade from the 1910s Edwardian era to the 1970s where the post modern design comes full circle.

I love the images above of Edwardian ladies in their white lace and cottons. The simplicity of the cuts with lots of embellishment and romance. The film 'A Room with a View' has always been an inspiration.

Our design will need modernisation and I will take elements of cut and embellishment to feed into the dress.
