I have been a one woman belt production line the last few days, making elastic bow belts for the shop I sell through in London, Mnini. They are taking part in a Carnaby Street event with Grazia magazine and thought my belts would be a good seller on the day. The bows are made from a mixture of all the leftovers of fabrics from dresses I've made, so nothing goes to waste. Waist belts are always a fabulous option for putting over dresses, tops or cardis and these ones will definitely brighten up any outfit. Anyone in London should head over Carnaby Street way on the 12th November and have a wander round the shops there, think there is a bit of a discount on offer as well.

So I am finally getting round to finishing my Autumn/Winter collection after starting it over 2 months ago. It seems making wedding dresses and doing workshops have taken over the last couple of months of my life but now I am getting to the end of them and get to go back to the creative side. I am doing my photoshoot this Sunday, again with the fabulous Paul Marr and will, I am pretty damn certain, get some beautiful shots. I thought I would put a couple of sneaky peeks on of some detail shots of a couple of dresses with more to follow once the shoot is all done and dusted. As usual there are dresses and patterns and colour galore, especially with the fabulous vintage fabrics i was so lucky to gain from Mrs Tutton whose gorgeous vintage gowns are now in full resplendency in Godiva waiting to be snapped up by some lucky fashionista.
