Behind the scenes of the new collection

Kate HalfpennyComment

I just wanted to share some little behind the scenes shots from Monday's shoot at Big Sky studios. It was a brilliant day. I can't ever believe how much we manage to get done. The team were amazing. I'm so lucky to work with such lovely talented people. My gorgeous boutique and studio team were incredible. And on a daily basis inspire me and are responsible for the growth of our little  British brand we are nurturing. Thank you girls! 

We can't wait to share the new collection with all you gorgeous brides to be. It'll soon be hitting our boutique for you to try and our stockist later in the summer. 

Much love

Ps. Thanks Gill for the gorgeous pics X  

BOW BRAVE

Loving our Brave new direction. The Bow cape is just delicious. I'll be having one of these in black for every day!

Slinky... 

This is a version of a top we made for Cheryl (was Cole) I won't even attempt the spelling of her epic new surname. The slinky st. Tropez silk is just dreamy.

Final touches  

We had an amazing hair and makeup team, Vero on makeup, she was "the oracle" Val Garlands first assistant for years, she was incredible and so was  amazing Anna on hair.

Textures! 

We all know I'm fabric obsessed. So this season I've created my own, hand embroidery and beading, 3D flowers and delicious appliquéd.

Sylvie  

This is the new embroidered tulle bodice and floaty dreamy chiffon dress. One of my favourite pieces from the new collection. It's a show stopper and totally unique as I designed the embroidery. Look at all those covered buttons too. The entire spine is buttons!

Esme updated! 

This is our classic Esme dress but we've given her an upgrade and she's now in silk chiffon with the bodice in a  polka dot silk.

Layering the looks!  

I love the new bow jacket over the Sylvie dress. Look at the arms under poking out from under the sleeves of the jacket! Heavenly.

Hope you're as excited as us to see the dresses in the boutique. X
