Next month fashion designer to the stars, Jenny Packham, who has dressed the likes of Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie and Catherine Middleton is launching her first high street collaboration with department store Debenhams. A couple of months back I went to a preview of the collection, which features a capsule line of 19 dresses with some gorgeous floor-sweeping maxis and adorable prom dresses and sexy cocktail numbers.
I was a little worried how the collection would work for the high street considering Jenny Packham is known for her exquisite glamour and quality in both her bridal and ready-to-wear lines. What has translated well is her signature style the collection features pleating, gentle draping, luxurious looking fabrics, florals and intricate graphic prints, as well as gorgeous bold block colours with the red dress really catching my eye.
After being surprised by the collection, I was more in shock when I learnt how affordable the line was going to be with prices starting at just £18 for accessories and from £85 for dresses, with the floor-skimming maxi costing £160, which means that it will be making a lot of appearances at weddings this summer!!!
There is even a cute bridesmaid collection for girls – how adorable.
