Today is Ladies Day at Ascot… I’ve had a great couple of weeks putting together a look for the BottleGreen Company (producers of elderflower drinks) for Katrina Hodge, the current Miss England, to wear at Ascot. A brief that had to include flowers on the dress and some subtle branding… something with the “wow” factor and also wearable… A good challenge but one I think we (myself & John D Reid) executed.

Being Ladies Day and also being a fan of “My Fair Lady” it seemed appropriate to create something larger than life, with some grandeur and statement making. There of course there has to be a hat, to remember the grandeur and great styling of Cecil Beaton.  Under it all there has to be the support that gives it  & keeps its volume, 10m of netting some panniers and of course a small crinolines… if you’re gonna do it you might as well go the whole hog so to speak

… let the races begin our one is ready to trot!
