It’s been crazy busy here but taking time out for coffee (green tea for me!) this morning while we plan our next few weeks with some fantastic industry friends, our Trunk Show and Stockists Event. Amazing things happen when you get together with other creatives. These beautiful image started out on a connection over instagram, which led to chat over a cuppa in the Northern Quarter in Manchester, on a very snowy day and has resulted with lovely Kate Dales and talented photographer  Arran Critchley, creating this gorgeousness for us in the sun of Cape Town, South Africa.

Arran Critchley is a talented successful published fashion photographer originally from Manchester but currently living out in Cape Town . He has an eye for an authentic natural look which we basically love and so excited to have been able to work with him on this capsule shoot.The shoot features model Kate wearing our Rae dress, a flowing silk separates and long sleeved lace sleeved top, shot in Elgin and our popular figure hugging River dress captured by the sea at Hermanus. I am in love with the setting, I cannot wait for our first wedding in the stunning setting of South Africa.

Making connections online is often the start of great things but meeting and connecting in person is the brilliant too. Talking of meeting in person … we have announced of our Trunk Show .. taking place on the 23rd June 2018 at Leaf on Portland Street in Manchester. You can book your appointment to try the collection on and meet the designers now.

We also have a Stockist Event on the 24th June, we are excited to be looking for stockist for our collection and are looking for like minded boutiques to join with us. Please contact for your invitation.
