Autumn Glory and a touch of Frost

Back in early November when the the falling leaves displayed their richest hues and the precious golden light of the short days was at its softest, I got together with vintage textile expert and milliner Emma Caderni to style some of my favourite dresses with her extraordinarily beautiful, naturalistic head pieces and original vintage accessories. The result, photographed by Fiona Kelly, was a marriage of minds with each dress easily partnering with a perfect accessory to acheive a complete look.

The full set of images was featured here on Love my dress. I will be adding more images from this shoot to these pages over the coming weeks, but to start with we took the outside inside to shoot Carly and Emmeline dresses.

Thank you to hair and make-up expert Carla Ramsey and to our models Kat Horton and Miranda.
