Flowered Up


Wouldn’t this fabulous bespoke floral dress make a dazzling display all on its own at this week’s Chelsea Flower Show? Our client wanted to copy one of her favourite vintage dresses (and express her love of all things green), but I think we’ve improved on nature by producing this hand-finished silk-satin number with a digitally printed floral pattern, cut so that every petal and stamen lines up at the seams (this alone took the best part of three days). It’s all in the best possible cultivated taste, thanks to our own rare blooms Magdalena (who did research, pattern-cutting, fitting and toile), and Maria (who constructed the gossamer-light wonder with buyers-bound seams, an inner lining to add body, and a reinforced back vent to keep the line sleek). I think that, wherever our client ventures in this, the bouquets (both real and metaphorical) will come thick and fast.
