I don’t know why I didn’t think of this beforehand, but hey, I have now, and that’s the main thing.
One of my ‘issues’ with blogging about my work is that it is mainly private, so although I’m often working on stuff a year before the event, it would be unthinkable to show it. Once the event is over it can take a while for pictures to come through, so often I’m very busy, but my hands are tied with visuals.
I’ve made 100s of dresses and outfits over the years, so why not show them? Somehow, to me, the concept of blogging has always felt very much ‘in the moment’ rather than the past, but why I should think this way, I don’t know, and I’m not now.
This is the wedding of Sabine. It was some years back now, but her picture has graced many of my adverts and publicity over the years (and no doubt will continue to do so), because I think she looks stunning in these pictures and the design kind of sums up my work ‘look’.
The dress she is wearing is called Fleur. It is no longer in my collection, but a new version should appear sometime soon. This original version is a very slim A-line shape, but actually looks straight when she is walking down the stairs. People have often compared this image and ‘look’ to Audrey Hepburn, and there is something of the elfin about Sabine in this dress. I still love it and she looks so happy 🙂
