Debutante dresses

A bit of a chilled day today, just some net gathering and bikini making planned for later. I am supposed to be having a day off after all!

This morning with my wake up mug of coffee I watched an amazing documentary on 'Debutantes', part of the Timewatch series on the BBC. There are some really great stories and insights from some real posh characters, and of course....the frocks!

Watching it really took me back to an exhibition at Kenny Palace called D├ębutante where they had genuine dresses from the last D├ębutante Ball in the 1950's. So here I am going to relive some of my favourite dresses from that exhibition, and how it is totally relevant to the collection 'Fleurs Du Mal' which I have been working on.

These are so pleasurable because they are so girly, almost demure. The detailing I love, particularly the pale blue roses and silver beading.
I'm so looking forward to revealing my final pieces, in time, and similarly enjoying sharing some of my thoughts, trials and tribulations along the way.
