Overwhelmed by loveliness

May i present to you - a complete and utter dreamboat - Miss Valerie Enriquez - graphic designer, LA lady, and a gal i'd truly love to befriend. Valerie has been swanning around town in the biscuit dress i made for her last year - doesn't she look a vision! She could be starring in a Sofia Coppola movie.

 Seeing a girl as kind as Valerie wearing the dress, making it a part of her life, is the sort of heart warming thing that pushes me in the direction to create - and i feel like it's good to visit the past and say thank you to the things that have come before.

I began designing these illustrated dresses mid-way through 2012, not knowing where it would lead to, and it turned out that my whole life has changed because i decided to pursue my passions.  Thanks to those of you who have stuck by this blog while i've been involved in my studies, and a special thanks to those who have ordered dresses - it's impossible for me to say how important and wonderful it has been.

I do have a little bit of news though - I will be retiring these dresses towards the end of the year in order to make way for the new ideas that i've got on the go... prototypes are underway!
