Design Competition Winners!

by Shhh! Couture on Friday, June 24, 2011 at 10:01pm

I am SO EXCITED about this competition! I think you'll all agree with me that the entries have been phenomenal. As such, it's been far too difficult to choose one collection. I have spent the last few hours debating with my guest judges - we have come to the decision that there will be two winners! :D (Though to be honest I would have loved to work with everyone that entered the competition!)


The two competition winners are -

Hayley Sharman and Janine Basil.

Each collection is so brilliant, that I couldn't possibly choose between the two. They are completely different and so unique. Shhh! Couture is so proud to have these two designers and their mini collections as part of the brand.

Hayley and Janine - I'll be emailing you both over the weekend so we can get things moving :D

I hope everyone is as excited as I am about these collaborations.

One last thank you to everyone who entered, and to everyone that has commented and given their opinions on the designs. It's really appreciated :)

The Davenport shop of originality.

On Thursday I took part in a live fashion show
I was invited to show my garments
by Pash of Style Creative who had joined
with Sarah Davenport to hold
the event.
The day consisted of models having their hair and make-up done in the
window of the shop, then changing
in a booth and modelling in and out of the window.
The aim of the day was not only to help raise awareness of both independent
designers in the midlands,
but the Davenport shop of originality,
as an outlet for independents fashion designers, illustrators and

If anybody hasn't visited the shop I would definitely recommend
having a look. There are some stunning
paintings and illustrations, corsets and underwear by Eternal Spirits,
and some fantastic cut out art. All by
local people.
Their address is 8 Flying Horse Walk, Nottingham, NG1 2HN.

In total there was around 15 models, 4 fashion/underwear designers,
and a couple of jewellery designers.

I had the absolute pleasure of working with models Lhoryn and Beau,
who did an amazing job of modelling two of my pieces.

Here are a few pictures for now, I shall upload the rest later.
