Umbra Collection: Rosemaree White

Rosemaree White's collection is for women who dress to be noticed.

Rosemaree White's collection at Umbra Collective Student Runway was a standout and therefore deserved its own blog post.

White's pieces are sophisticated, feminine, dark and seductive. Inspired by decorative and intensely detailed nouveau windows and glassware, she designs for women who dress to be noticed.

Full of embellishments, the elegant silhouettes and lines are to-die-for. It would be a dream to own a piece of her collection.

Watch out for Rosemaree White, she is sure to go places.

Umbra Collective: Jasmine Nash | The Modern Bride

This is the first of a few posts on the Umbra Collective student runway that I attended last week.

First up is Jasmine Nash's collection The Modern Bride. 


Inspired by nature, Jasmine Nash's bridal collection borrows the textures and voluminous silhouettes from the veiled lady mushroom. Created for the modern bride as the name suggests, the collection is full of contemporary wedding dresses with a difference. Each piece is intricately layered, embellished and pleated.

When I saw this gorgeous collection on the runway, it made me really excited to get married. Cost aside, how many wedding dresses would be too many for my big night...

Stella Jean Spring/Summer 2014

I first discovered designer and queen of clashing prints, Stella Jean, back in 2013 on Pinterest. I fell in love with her whimsical style, tribal patterns and charming silhouettes. Half-Haitian, half-Italian model turned fashion designer, Jean's new Spring Summer 2014 collection is the perfect ray of sunshine, spreading happiness to all who glance upon her designs. Playful and quirky, Jean uses her multicultural background to create the perfect balance of Italian haute couture craftsmanship, ethnic shapes and prints and a timeless elegance.

My Ode to Kit Willow

This is my ode to Kit Willow, fashion pioneer, former creative director, designer and founder of the Willow label.

In November 2013, Ms Willow was coldly dismissed from the label she launched a decade ago. In September 2011, Apparel Group, which also own Sportscraft and Saba, acquired a majority shareholding in the Willow business and appointed Ms Willow creative director. Now, several years later, the company abruptly terminated Ms Willow's employment as creative director at Willow.
