|Once Documentary and fashion photographer Marie Man had mentioned Lavender during our first design meeting ..I got to work sketching this corset, skirt and Bustle.. as I had already noticed|
the fabrics in my library of silk books. I quickly matched certain fabric textures to achieve the look we wanted to create.

We talked about Fairy tales with a twist and alternative ideas..What a team..Intuitive from the start.

Behind the scenes...
This promised to be an exciting experience,and it did not dis-appoint! The Photographer and Director, Marie Man called me to ask if I would be interested in providing some conceptual Wedding ideas based around colour themes...Lavender and Fucshia...both separate themes.
I was already in the process of building my portfolio for 2013 and these colours fitted in perfectly. I am not inspired by the mass flood of Ivory Bridalwear in the traditional sense so this was great inspiration for me....alternative but commercial, inspired although indulgent as Bridal wear and Unique as it should be..to suit the Brides personality...
