this scottish fashion designer is partial to bright eclectic contrasting prints, embellishment, bold fabrics & sometimes – capes. yes, the lady loves a cape. oh boy. her style is disco dress meets glamour shape (my words..) & she also happens to be a top wedding dress designer & maker too*. please meet
this is rowans autumn/winter ’14 collection – wallflower** – which was inspired by the work of gustav klimt & frida kahlo, combining colour & pattern perfectly. i l o v e the back panel of the above dress with that neckline & waistband. she nailed it.
rowan has a very clear style. she knows her uniform. and when you meet her in person, you’ll see she wears it, very well. her style definitely comes through in her work – designs that are inventive & charming & best paired with some glitter crusted accessories. she makes me want to mix up my wardrobe. buy some jewelled tights. because i’m a simple shirt, jumper, hat girl. & i should really get myself a pair of gold-dusted bowie boots. & disco a little.
*rowan made my wedding dress. from my head to her sketches to a muddy field in aberfeldy, may 2013. for a peak – look here
