Tell me about what inspired you to launch a Destinations collections.
When I was doing designer days around the country I noticed that there were many women requesting dresses for weddings abroad.
Realising the trends, I decided to come out with a collection for those mothers who are traveling abroad. I wanted to rise to the challenge of designing a product suited for any woman of any shape or size that could be flattering and still light enough to wear in a hot climate.
What can people expect to see in your Invitations Collection that you are launching?
A collection that is understated. These designs are aimed at a mother-of-the-bride who wishes to stay simple and classy or maybe even a guest at the wedding.
It’s filled with softer fabrics, cleaner lines and much much lighter in weight. It’s simple yet very chic and isn’t limited to just a wedding but perhaps Ascot, a Gala, charity event or a summer drinks party.
I wanted people to be inspired by what they saw.
What can you say about your designs as a whole this season?
We’ve mixed colours that don’t normally sit together to create a different look and give more options.
Colours like cerise and pink, turquoise and pink and plum and pink. We’ve introduced a lot more dresses and there is something for everyone!
We’ve used much softer fabrics and colorful prints and some really unusual shapes for the more modern mother-of-the-bride. I wanted to make a collection for younger mums.
I want people who buy the clothes to feel young, modern and stunning in them. When they slip into the dress, to have that sudden amazing feeling of when you wear a couture dress.
So there you have it! You won’t want to miss the new collection which is full of new designs for you to try and look your best in.
