This week we celebrated British Fashion. Today the label we are having here is another royal favorite – Catherine Walker. CW was one of Lady Diana’s favorite designer. She had around 1000 designs of Catherine Walker during her life and she was also buried in a black dress by Catherine Walker in 1997. One of the most iconic piece Catherine designed for Diana was her Elvis Gown. Then in this generation of royals, Catherine Walker has a stable corner in the wardrobe of Lady Diana’s elder Daughter-in-Law, Duchess of Cambridge.
Founded in 1977 by the design partnership of French-born Catherine Walker who became British after her marriage to a late British Solicitor and her second husband Said Cyrus the brand is a leading name in British Couture. Catherine was a successful couturier for over 30 years since 1977. Eight years after Catherine Walker’s death, Said Cyrus has started a new era in the history of the brand. Our look of the day has the label’s Midnight Garden Dress.
This romantic day dress is cut from a crepe de chine silk specially printed for the Company. The soft boat neckline is enhanced with hand-cut flowers embroidered onto the shoulder and waist and embellished with pearls and Swarovski crystals.
The £119 Tous Vermeil Silver Sky Power Earrings with Mother-of-pearl and spinel Earrings Pure energy radiates from the spinel. The purity and delicacy of mother-of-pearl. Continuously navigating serenely between two opposite worlds. It is beautiful beyond compare.
I paired the stunning dress with elegant Maud Clutch from Anya Hindmarch. A classic £475 clutch bag which can be embellished with embroidered initials. The interior can also be embossed with a hidden personal message that will make the owner smile every time she uses it. The Maud makes a perfect wedding gift to commemorate a special day for the bride, her mother or her bridesmaids.
I love the comfort of Espadrilles and when they come in the elegant colour and style they are undeniably the spring and summer favourites. For this look, I picked Monsoon UK Elena Espadrille Wedges. Putting a casual spin on warm-weather events, £45 Elena wedge heels are created with beachy espadrille soles. Their classic shape is imagined in soft suedette for an elegant finish.
