style. Sumptuous colours and vintage references inspire me within my work
and I love to mix them with classic touches. I hope to provide the wearer
with not only an eye catching, quality well cut garment, but also give
them that special something extra that will keep them reaching for it
over and over again....a timeless classic, and a much loved and cherished
