Here is an order of wedding favours, I put together for a lovely bride to be, they are my Lilac Bloom design and she wanted one for each of her female guests (57 in total), each in an organza gift bag, which doubles up as a pouch when in use.

I loved some of the floral prints from the Milan fashion shows. Above from left: Dolce and Gabbana (first two) and Antonio Marras. I absolutely adored the whole Dolce and Gabbana collection, where delicate blossom tree florals in soft colours were combined with intricate silk appliqué on sheer fabrics and silks. The collection also used Roman reference prints - ancient greek architecture and lithographs in mono tone, sepia colours that were digitally printed and combined with floral imagery, blown up coin prints as well as Sicilian decoration. The Antonio Marras collection included sketchy, painterly prints, illustrative landscapes and traditional looking botanical engravings in subtle colours (my favourites) adorned across dresses in a large scale.
Below are: Versace, Alberta Ferretti, and Just Cavalli. There was a mix of brightly coloured, collaged bold, photographic collaged blooms / garden floral prints of varying sizes and on light/dark coloured grounds. Alberta Ferretti was one of my personal favourites, with border scarf floral prints graduating in size with a folkloric feel.

Here are some of my favourite Designers collections from London for Spring Summer 14. From left to right: First two are Temperley, Mary Katrantzou, Preen and Peter Pilotto. All digital, mixed florals, I really love the Temperley floral prints mixed with leopard print, along with the quirky, playful florals at Mary Katrantzou with an exaggerated embroidery styling.

I have recently introduced some decorative floral hanging hearts to my collection. Using my silk, floral fabrics with my hand painted and drawn designs on and pretty ribbons and beads, they are perfect as a gift and make unique feminine home decorations. They are £5.00 each, get in touch if you are interested.
After my new phone some how managed to delete all my blog images I have ever posted (Which I still can't understand!?) I am returning to pay some much needed attention to my blog. I have lots to update on of fairs, new things, my new venture to the wedding market, which has been really exciting for me. Here is a preview of some pocket mirrors that I did for a lovely wedding this weekend for the bride to give to her bridesmaids as gifts/ favours.
