Named after the enchantress Morgan Le Fay, the Morgan Dress really brings the mystical magic of the forest in Legends alive. Made from beautiful 100% Cotton Broderie Anglaise, with forest green cotton guipure lace trim.
The seams, shoulder caps and panelling of the dress mimic armour plating. Completing the look is lace trim waistband, the pleated skirt flares out from this point.
Broderie Anglaise is printed in the Heraldry Print, designed by our Summer intern Jackie. The Heraldry print depicts symbols of Arthurian Legend; lions, swords, shields; dragons etc. This colourway comes on a forest green background with jewel toned illustrations.
Eva wears a UK 8-10 and is 6ft wearing the heeled boots pictured.
Enter the world of legends, dragons, mythological creatures and magic. Inspired by the local folklore of Alderley Edge Forest and it’s resident wizard, our jewel toned prints this season take on the form of ancient stories, retrieving swords from mysterious lakes, welsh tales of dragons with acts of chivalry and bravery. Paired with classic tartans, regal elements and William Morris inspired symbolism to evoke this mystical era but in an updated and wearable style.
To encapsulate the romance of this theme we looked to the pre-Raphaelites, who reinvigorated interests in classic British folklore in beautiful painted form, with flowing fabrics and unconventionally loose waistlines. We have imbued a sense of medieval dress in our shape design by taking bodice shapes and panelling details from armour and doublets, with gathered puff sleeves to create this iconic whimsical silhouette.
