Florals back in bloom…

This season we are very excited about floral prints making a return! Our Eleanor dress in sumptuous floral gold or pink fabrics is a perfect example of this, another popular floral number is our beautiful floral Imogen dress with three dimensional flower detailing. Perfect for Easter, these floral designs are a huge hit this season!

Embellishments, it’s all about the detail…

Beautifully embellished fabrics are currently a big hit. Our most favoured designs are our Jessica dress and Serena dress, both with beautifully embellished jewelled and beaded Peter pan collars. They are such popular styles and with a fabulous range of colours to choose from, there is something to suit every occasion. These can be made a little more sophisticated in silver or green hues for older girls.

Sweet pea colours are always popular for spring, especially with Easter and May Day coming up. We have a range of beautiful colours to compliment all little girls. Our Juliette dress in rose has a unique heart cut out back, adding that something extra special for the beautiful birthday girl! There’s also our Matilda dress in a soft wisteria tone with the darker collar and sash, and of course our signature oversized bow, to finish the look.

Cool blue hues…

Subtle blue shades are seriously popular for spring party season. It’s a flattering colour and something a little different from the usual lighter tones, like ivory, shell pink and white. The girls love blue as it makes them feel like Cinderella and our Sylvie dress in sorbet sky blue is a real hit for any celebration!

Colour me happy…

Always remember that colour is a very personal thing, so choose one that your little girl really likes and says something about her character. Don’t go for the latest bang-on-trend colour just because it’s fashionable. Dressing your little one in something she isn’t completely happy with won’t guarantee a smiling face on the day, and after all, you’ll want her to be the belle of the ball!
