I said two weeks ago that I wanted give you a list of items which Londoners have in their wardrobes. Alas, it was not to be. Life is often chaotic and messy, yet still wonderful 🙂 I was busy with our first samples- and if you follow me on Instagram you would have seen my photos from the fittings.
So whilst I still intend to share the list with you next week, I’m excited to show you the first samples. They were made in inexpensive fabric (ultimately they will be made in bamboo silk) to get the fit perfect. There are many things to change fo course- sleeves will be more t-shirt like rather than cap, waist in two dressed will go slightly up forgetter proportion, a A line dress will have less volume. Yet, I could see even than the sample maker understood my vision perfectly.
What I want to create were elegant, clean lines, so simple that they verged on austerity. Calm, too. No frills, no busy decorations, simply considered shape and beautiful fabric.
At the end of the month we will have another fitting and I soon I will be able to show you finished collection. There is so much still to do- production, promotion, branding, website. But things are moving forward and it makes me really happy 🙂
