I can finally reveal a very special commission that I worked on earlier this year. Five lovely local Stockport lads - more commonly known as Blossoms - commissioned Olivia Annabelle to design some shirts for their new album.
I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to design - this was towards the end of lockdown and I was feeling like I needed a new project!
The brief was perfect, a mix of 1970s and New Romantic vibes, and I’m so glad that this was my first ever dip into menswear! I knew that for this special task I needed the best seamstress and luckily Eliza May Atelier, ran by my friend Miriam, was up for the challenge! Miriam is meticulous when it comes to detail and she managed to get all 5 blouses done for our tight schedule!
The shirts are inspired by 1970s dress shirts and feature pussy bow ties (extra long so they can be tied multiple ways), flounced frilly cuffs and are made from 100% sustainable bamboo silk.
Thank you so much Blossoms for entrusting myself and Miriam with this amazing project! Check out their amazing new single ‘Care For’ it is so good!
Okay, I love a puff sleeve maxi dress but this print seriously takes it to another level. When I got the dress in the mail I was just staring at the pattern for nearly 20 minutes marveling at all the detail and hidden gems in the print. The detailing on the bodice is also just amazing. I’m addition to the neckline, the stitching of the bodice is really reminiscent of the lines created by stays and it looks so gorgeous on. This brand never disappoints
I absolutely adore my new lover’s eyes blouse. The workmanship, quality and detail is exquisite and the size is on point. I adore the nod to historical silhouettes too. The lover’s eye print is fantastic and makes the blouse so unique. I look forward to enjoying it for many years.
This is even more stuning than the photos. The pattern is vibrant and eye-catching. The material is a beautiful soft, almost delicate corduroy, so cosy. Superb quality of make, this is a forever piece. I couldn't be more delighted.
