”Start the season with a bang of bright colour and beautiful fabrics with my new collection for Very.co.uk. For spring, it’s all about flirty, fun and flattering pieces that will take you into summer and beyond.
Playing on a number of spring’s trends including bold prints, bright hues and lace embellishments, the collection has something for every occasion. I can’t get enough of tea and pencil dresses so I decided to design a few variations of each style. The chiffon tea dress in a bright pink hue is fresh and spring-like, while the sweetheart neck on what I call my “Hawaiian” blue dress is flirty and sexy. The lace trim and collar on the printed tea dress add a lovely feminine touch to a classic.
Speaking of lace, it’s a huge trend for spring and I loved adding a subtle touch here and a more obvious embellishment there. The pencil dress with the lace insert takes your office attire to a new level while the lace sleeves on a few different silhouettes offer a sophisticated and soft touch to a classic frock.
And every girl should have at least one maxi dress (or two) on rotation this summer. My animal-print strapless version is ideal for a classy occasion with a heel and clutch or a more dressed-down affair on a beach with sandals and a floppy hat. I also love the angel sleeves on the jersey maxi that offer a bit more coverage but are equally flattering and feminine. The maxi is incredibly versatile and can be worn with platform heels and statement jewellery, or dressed down with flats and a jean jacket.
From dazzling easy-to-wear dresses, flattering and form-fitting silhouettes to feminine florals and pretty lace embellishments, I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can don these pretty pieces. And I reckon you too will love the mix of girly and sophisticated in my new collection.”
