New in!!! Minshan

Inspired by a dazzling festival of light where colourful lanterns twinkled like pretty jewels and silk pandas played in the lush green bamboo. 
Also born from our love of animals especially the adorable Giant Panda and Red Panda. Here’s Jung, a gorgeous resident at Chester Zoo! 
From the profits of ‘Minshan’, Lewis
and Irene will be donating to Act Now For Wildlife led by Chester Zoo who say, “Protecting Giant Pandas and Red Pandas from extinction in the wild simply means ensuring they have a home to live in. Without the forests these enigmatic animals will be lost in the wild forever”

In Love with Flourish by Ciana Bodini

Im in Love with Flourish by Ciana Bodini

I love the vintage vibe to this collection

Red Valentino’s Fall 2012 Collection was whimsical and sweet, just like 

Flourish! The whole collection was infused with blushing pinks, ruffles, florals on 

florals, and over-the-top bows This dress was reminiscent 

of Camelots Flourish print.

Flourish by Ciana Bodini. Flourish is a soft and dreamy collection of pretty florals 

and streamlined prints. The inviting peach, mint, and mineral blue hues are a 

perfect combination for this romantic collection. The effortless femininity of this

collection is reminiscent of a quiet spot in the outskirts of Paris – all you’re 

missing is a chic dress, classic french read, and a vintage bicyclette!

Due out Late January in USA, feb in UK

Also check out Ciana Bodini webpage for further scrummy photos.
