A Dress To Impress

01 May 2015

Dress We recently stumbled across a project we had the pleasure of supporting a few years ago and felt that it deserved a second glance. In 2013 Katrina Doran collaborated with designer Lizzie Agnew to create the AW shoot for Erneside Shopping Centre. The focus of the shoot was a tailor made dress created using a pair of our curtains. I know for many of you your first thought will be of the questionable clothing Maria created for the Von Trapp kids in the Sound of Music. But this creation was decidedly more along the lines of Scarlet O’Hara’s famous green dress in Gone With The Wind.

The shoot took place in the stunning Castle Coole, which is beautifully decorated with ornaments and art brought back from a trip to China. To complement this oriental style of the house Katrina and Lizzie selected our Kyoto ready-made eyelet curtains, which had oriental elements in the print. The soft mint green of the curtains also complemented the colours of the castle and created a fabulous contrast between model Hollie Keegan’s vibrant red hair.

We just love this piece.
