This Floral Couture piece features a mass of silk flowers meticulously stitched together on a base of leather, linens, sequins and faux fur.

I designed this Floral couture piece whilst isolated in the March floods of 2022.


Designed whilst isolated by the continuing flood waters.

As you know, I always design in fresh flowers. However this time Mother Nature decided not to give me that opportunity. Flooding me in, yet again.

My whole concept had to change just over a week out from the Show.

I cut up my cats house for the heavy wire. I raided my cupboard for clothes and chopped into furnishings. Finding all the Leathers, linens and faux fur I could to bring my vision to life.

This piece is fully lined and finished with meticulous details.

I treated the flowers to give them a leathery look.

And that was just the design element.

The model and I spent hours behind the scenes choreographing the character that had to be embodied to bring the piece to life.

Then there were the creative discussions with the photographer in regards to the capturing of the piece. Yes you know it, we did a side shoot!

Many many hours of stitching, weaving and crafting went into this piece.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we all enjoyed bringing it to life.
