Emilia Wickstead and British Elegance.

by Cashmere Wrap & Macadamia Nuts

British fashion is not a subject I think of frequently, as London style is not among my favorites. However, designs by Emilia Wickstead caught my eye, as they seem to be… not so british after all.

As designer talks about her inspiration, “I like to think that what we’ve created is a way that women used to dress, but a much more fresh and modern version. When I first started, I believed in old-world couture and I used to look back, and still do, at old Dior and Lanvin. I loved the craftsmanship behind it, the quality of the product , and I loved that the clothes were ladylike and dressy – uppy”, it suddenly becomes very easy to understand.
