1980s Fashion

In the 1980s, responding to demand from the top department stores and specialist boutiques, I scaled up production and started to produce twice-yearly collections of occasion-wear, which I showed at London Fashion Week and privately at the Savoy.

I sourced beautiful silk prints in Italy and France, as well as luscious and eye-wateringly expensive embroidered Swiss fabrics and worked with artisanal beading specialists such as Hand & Lock in London.
My designs sold brilliantly throughout the UK for weddings and Royal Ascot in particular; my secondary market in the US was almost as big, with Saks Fifth Avenue, Nieman Marcus and Henri Bendel among my American retailers and my tertiary market was the Middle East (particularly Kuwait and KSA).
