This month we are thrilled to launch our NEW 2019/20 catalogue. A new and improved catalogue that makes shopping per colour for your dream dress that much easier and inspiring.



Believing in making dreams come true is a theme that flows perfectly through the imagery set for this catalogue. Modelled by Ballroom dancer Stephanie Bossen who made this dress of dreams truly come alive, with partner Ben Taylor.


The dress is the main focus of the imagery that flows beautifully through each content of the catalogue and was designed by our couture designer Phoebe Ratcliff-Reid…



‘My inspirations for this dress was of a 1950’s classic look with a keen focus on the female silhouette with a sweet girly accent. La La Land was a huge inspiration to me with the colours and concepts of the story about making dreams come true, combined with vintage Hollywood glamour.


I focused on using the Swarovski® LacquerPRO DeLite Effects combined with Shimmer jewel crystals. The DeLite and Shimmer effects marry perfectly together each with their own unique shine.


I just love using the DeLite Crystals, they have such a fantastic shine whilst still keeping the true colour of the crystal.


The dress I designed in our new colour Buttercream. Pastels are so on trend and with the launch of this colour released earlier this year, I felt It was the perfect choice to enhance the Hollywood glamour feel.


A rainbow of underskirts captures the perfect movement that reflects the stunning colours of the DeLite and Shimmer crystals.  The initial design was focused on the dress style that would sculpt and enhance the figure and movement it created. The ruched bodice creates a cinched in waist that flows beautifully into pleated skirts in satin chiffon that captures elegant movement. The linear design of the crystals enhances the ruched bodice and pleating perfectly.


The finished look is demure and rich that truly embodies a 1950’s sweetness’.
