Spring News at Drapiere

Champagne corks explode and the bubbles flow – We are celebrating the arrival of Spring!

And with spring comes colour – bouncing forth with vibrance and energy, spilling over in bold prints, feisty florals and playful feminine pastels. Girls, the weather is heating up and so is the fashion. All making a grand statement as the days get longer and the iciness of winter disappears.

I love the mood of the season, the warmth of the sun, the spring bulbs – colour literally bursting out of the ground all around us. It’s time to shed the dark colours of of winter and pull on something that really makes us smile!


The beautiful blue hues favoured as one of the main colours this summer is definitely making me smile for it is one of my favourite colours to wear. Blues and Reds are always my number one choice, which shows throughout my collections but for spring 2012 blue is definitely coming out on top! This season we have a fabulous selection of dresses and tops in all shades of blue, from navy to powder blue – that are all simply gorgeous and very tempting for the summer wardrobe.


We have some fabulous retro style dresses, which I just adore, in various shades of blue, red and a vibrant lemon – divine. Wrap over dresses which are a must for all of you who collect these fabulous slim line pieces, and a gorgeous new style that is super flattering to the figure while bouncing with ruffles and buttons and edging galore and is just oh so pretty on!

Wedding season is also peeping from around the corner, with invitations being gold embossed as I write in preparation for sending. What to wear is always the first thought that comes to mind. Our occasion wear collection is better than ever with a wonderful selection of flattering pieces to feel fabulous in on the big day!


Please remember that our online store only has a small selection of what is actually available. If you have a special day coming up and can visit our studio you will be surprised at our big selection. All our styles can be altered and made to your specifications, so if you like a dress and want to change something about it, please call to discuss your requirements.


Prices have risen this year as silk prices have increased dramatically over the last twelve months. We have tried to absorb as much of this as we can, however, to keep our quality of production high we have had to pass some of the increase onto our clients.


Have a fabulous, fun filled spring and summer – I hope it is happy and filled with much sunshine, warmth and laughter!
