I find it so easy to sit with our clients and help design them a Semple dress and yet when it came to designing my own, I went blank! I suddenly felt this flush of pressure to design THE ‘perfect dress’ but then it dawned on me that this is how our clients feel when...Read More
Women’s workwear is a rather monotonous affair. Often mimicking mens silhouettes: boxy and boring, further described using words such as dull and colourless. Women’s work-dress, however, should not have to consist of such unvaried and unimaginative options.

When it comes to our wardrobes, we all have our favourite items. Those pieces that are fail-safe. That we know look good and that we can just throw on. We may have had them for years, or they may be a recent investment. It could be as simple as a plain grey t-shirt, or a...Read More

Whether it be a consultation or fitting...Read More
Following Royal Wedding fever – although I feel many of us are still suffering from the excitement of it all – I thought I would touch again on the not-so-trivial subject of wedding guest attire. Although we were all waiting with baited breath to see what Meghan Markle would be wearing, there was an additional...Read More
Compared to the last few years, this year is a quiet one in terms of weddings as I only have one to attend. Although it’s an important one as my older brother is getting married in September. I’ve mentioned many times before that at this time in your life when you reach your late 20s...Read More
While they continue to grow in popularity today, the history behind the humble Espadrille is one that dates back more than 700 years to 1322 when they were considered prime peasant footwear. A French term, the Espadrille still retains much of its old and more traditional characteristics, despite the change in methods and material used....Read More
