This time last week I was on pins and needles awaiting the long awaited, much anticipated Animal Ball.. hosted at Victoria House, Bloomsbury Square, London in aid of The Elephant Family Charity.

I was lucky enough that be one of the designers at the previous Animal Ball in 2013 hosted by HRH Prince Charles at St James Palace so when I was approached to participate again this year I jumped at the Chance!!

This year headline designers included Mathew Williamson, Burberry, Chloe, Mario Testino, Philip Treacy and Piers Atkinson to name a few so to be designing masquerade masks alongside them was just an amazing experience.

The Ball itself was simply fabulous, Victoria House was transformed into a safari with the most incredible background for one of the best parties of the year with guests including Ellie Goulding, Princess Eugenie, Anna Friel, James Middleton, Donna Air and many other fabulous guests!!

Hopefully the event managed to raise money for the late Mark Shands amazingly wonderful Charity, it was an honour to be a part of it and look forward to hopefully being so again in the future!

So, yesterday we had our long awaited photo shoot for our new S/S 2015 Collection on location at the marvellous Brymore Academy in Bridgewater.

The location was simply stunning with plenty of gorgeous places to take photos so we were all very excited!

We had decided that we were going to do several shots during the shoot, headshots, a bridal collection, a gothic selection and some fantastic body painting shots with the fabulously talented Kate Spinks Dean!

I was absolutely thrilled to be working once again with sisters Sarah Eccles-Markey (styling, hair & make up) and Bethan Eccles (photographer) and too stunningly gorgeous models Miranda Staples and Kirsty Jade Green.

To say that the shoot was a sucsess was a total understatement… It was such allot of fun and with so many talented people the photos are going to be AMAZING!!

Here’s a few backstage photos to give you a taster of what’s to come!!


We will be launching the new collection in the next few days so stay tuned!!!

A few weeks back we were contacted by up and coming stylist Bethan Edmondson who is currently studying at London College of Style.

Bethan used our fabulous Adrianna Fascinator in a shoot which she put together and styled personally..

We were absolutely thrilled when the photos came through as they were AMAZING!!

Last week one of the photos was featured in the Elegent Magazine which is fantastic news for Bethan and a privilege for us..

Bethan is clearly destined for great heights and we look forward to working with her again soon.
