Collection: Phoebe.

I should probably alert you all to the reason I'm not updating my Facebook page, which is that I have given up Facebook for lent. I also gave up chocolate, but that was just proving impossible! Nevertheless, my ban from Facebook is still going strong, though that means I'm unable to update you all that way, so my apologies!


I hope I am able to make it up to you, however, by showing you the next outfit that went down the catwalk (with difficulty). This look was based around a wide black and white striped pencil skirt that I was desperate to make as soon as I knew about the project. I searched high and low for such a material, but to no avail: so I resorted to making the stripes myself. Super tight and 3/4 length made it very difficult for poor Phoebe to walk normally, let alone down a catwalk. But being the 'strutter' she is, she pulled it off and looked sexy as ever.


Next up was the top half, I knew I again wanted a restrictive garment, to contrast the freer element of the last outfit, but the colour was the issue. Then, after Orange. I knew what colour it must be and, when I found this luminescent orange in such a stiff cotton, I was delighted. This look was turning out to be a little harsher, with sharp lines and pointed shoulders, so I added a pointed collar.


I have also had word that the catwalk video has been fully edited and finished, so hopefully will be able to show that to you all soon!

This is an absolutely delicious ensemble that you have created here. The zingy, zing zing of the orange is perfectly offset by the collar with its hint of fuschia. Great shapes too.

liz said...

Godness, the color and shape of top very sharp ! And the color so spring :)
