A new space for 2019!


Hello and welcome to the new webpage, it's lovely to see you here and I hope you enjoy seeing my work as before. The new page is a work in progress in the next couple of weeks but very much back in action.


After a busy Autumn I've also needed to move the website to a new platform and this has happened thanks to some super input from Scotland, for which I'm very grateful! So as life settles back to normal and we're slowly heading through Winter towards Spring 2019, now seemed like a perfect time to re-launch A Blush of Rose.


You can still see most of my archive going back to 2009 when my adventures began (when living in South Kensington and unexpectedly saw the intriguing fashion world wizzing past my doorstep) through a tab on the menu to the left hand side. I've taken some time to lift over several pages from 2017 and 2018 to give the new space something of a homely feel before I add more stories and features going forward from early 2019. This home page shows some past stories from the Summer and a couple of upcoming pieces but I've got a lot more planned for this year.



 



Upcoming feature: London Fashion Week SS19

Now I'm back online with the new page there will shortly be my usual seasonal chapters showing the most interesting looks shown at London Fashion Week for the coming Spring with some reports including photography shot by me either at the Catwalk or Backstage.

To get us ready for Spring here is a bright burst of colour from Johnstons of Elgin.




Cruise away the Winter with CHANEL

This week sees Haute Couture walk in a snowy Paris and whilst we're still in the grip of Winter here are a few looks from my Summer 2018 page feature on the current Cruise season collection available in store and online around the world. Warm colours and soft fabrics are 100% guarenteed to banish any gloom and enjoy a beautiful end to Winter in classic pieces.



A Fashion History moment of sorts with Charles II - Art and Power.

The language of fashion explored through the medium of Sir Peter Lely. First shown at Buckingham Palace and currently at the Queen's Gallery at Hollyrood Palace. This can be seen on my Summer 2018 page.

Christian  Dior: Designer of Dreams - The V&A Museum, London.


After showcasing in Paris in 2017 the celebration of the 70 year milestone of the House of Dior comes (as I thought it would) to London in late January 2019. The preview is in the diary and I'll bring you an update here before my full article. This is part of my montage I shot in Paris of the first exhibition in September 2017 during Paris Fashion Week and I'm sure something just as beautiful will arrive.
