...just launched this January and will hopefully be filtering around the country in stores as I type. You can also purchase them by emailing me through the web site and stating if you would like to purchase the blossom collection (x6) or the rose collection (x6), each pack is £12.00 plus £2.25 P&P and I will get back to you with payment details... perfect to have in your bottom drawer for birthdays, valentines, weddings, and just to say hello....

...my valentine card to my husband arrived this morning, from lobster and swan, well its not actually a card but miniature bunting in a matchbox that spells 'valentine' - obviously I know he won't want to display it across his computer at work so I am hoping it comes back my way so I can hang it on my pin board in the studio...so I suppose that makes it a present to myself!?*...

.......I couldn't resist the colours displayed in this photo from Brides Cafe, we have had quite a few requests for sample packs this year using grey as the main colour with accents of interesting brights. Maybe this photo may inspire you to opt for a more dramatic look.........spot the dahlias(see previous feature!)

Well,..... the 'Cartmel' collection has only just been launched and it looks as if it is going to be one of the best selling collections this year, it holds a special place in my heart as it was designed from drawings produced in 'The Lakes' last summer, 'our perfect family hideaway', Jamie, Ava, Mia and Me........warming memories of a gorgeous little village 'Staveley in Cartmel' at the base of Lake Windermere. My designs, to me, are diaries, endearingly treasured....
Above is the Charcoal range re-coloured for a client introducing hot pink. If you would like to request a sample please quote Cartmel: Charcoal - Natasha.

If you are inspired by the 50's and 60's and would love a vintage style dress that is made exclusively for you then you must see Candy Anthony's collections (based in London). The silhouette is simple yet stylish and you can bring a splash of fun through colour using printed fabrics or netting underneath the skirt......
Just had an indulgent half hour on Brides Magazine's web site, if you are currently looking for your perfect wedding dress you will enjoy looking through their archive of photos from previous features. Here's a selection below to entice..........
Valentino and Collette Dinnigan
