My latest custom designer formal gown for a year 10 formal

The dress is beautiful. Absolutely stunning! Embellished in gorgeous Swarovski crystals and fine lace. The silhouette is off the shoulder panelled with a gorgeous fishtail with lace and Swarovski detail. The bodice is covered in lace as well and embellished lightly in each flower with Swarovski crystals.


Chanel gets naughty for fifty shades of Grey

In the futuristic approach of Chanel we have found the fabulous Rouge Allure lipstick range. The tint of choice is Passion 104 in its well protected metal casing. You simply press the end and it pops out of its lock and push it back in to protect it from unwanted damage. No man or woman could possibly walk past a woman wearing passion without having raunchy thoughts of fifty shades of grey and it has the kind of come hither appeal. Red. A non shiny more matt than tacky red. The reddest red that draws out the imagination reminding you of those kinky nights of your youth in bed with interesting men and drinking mohitos on yachts in the Mediterranean. Whether those luxurious nights were more fact or fiction this raunchy passion is coming in hot and heavy throughout 2015 winter and summer.


Bell of the Ball a Gothic Audrey Hepburn inspired Designer Dress

So I was very excited to have Kimberley in my studio this morning for her very first fitting of this Gothic style Audrey Hepburn designer formal dress. It looks absolutely fabulous. There is still a shoulder wrap to sew on and straps as well as roulette loops and a back panel but WOW she looks fabulous already! Here’s some photos. Sorry about the quality of the photos. I didn’t have time to take too many so just a quick couple off Kimberley’s phone.

Love Will Take Us To Wallsend. A story Of A Vibrant Red Carpet Dress & A Designer Florist






So with the excitement of Valentines Day sweet hearts ordering flowers everywhere across the country. I am here to bring you a story about Wallsend NSW Australia!!!!

Just 16 weeks old and we now have the very first Valentines day for Everything Floral!!!! Not the first Valentines day though for owner & head florist Alyn-Jai Miranda who has been in the industry for over 20 years with more experience in design and floristry than most people have in their right pinkie.

What I love is that Alyn-Jai Miranda came to me and asked for me to put one of my dresses in his store for the Valentines day week. I haven’t ever shared this dress with the world but it was one that I completed for my red carpet assessment in Tighes Hill Tafe. I have of of course added some finishing touches such as the pearls on the shoulder and the draping diamant√© back band and Now the day before Valentines day I would love to share some pictures of my dress in the front window display at Everything Floral!!!
