|The Jewel Collection:
This two-piece alternative wedding gown was in some ways a very belated way of agreeing with my art tutors. Twenty years ago I was frequently told to study textile art - I'm afraid I paid little heed. They had foresight though, because these days I gain so much enjoyment from manipulating fabrics, textures, weaves and colours. I feel that this corset would easily have a "second life" after the wedding day (often the requirement of many clients), worn with denim. It will be possible to order purely a corset - skirts can be designed individually to each client's requirements.|
"Lapis" is a style, not a set design, and can be constructed in endless colour combinations. However, the original inspiration came from the semi-precious stone, and there are some interesting attached connotations:|
Lapis Lazuli Healing Properties: Self-confidence, Love, Inner Power, Intuition. "A stone of protection....quickly releases stress, bringing deep peace. It bonds relationships, aiding in expression of feelings and emotions."
