A new found freedom had emerged bringing its own style with it. Revolution was in the air and no longer wanting to be dictated to, people's style became individual with a wealth of inspiration from around the globe. Ethnic influences from the East became an iconic part of the folk and hippie look. Floral patterns, smocked dresses with voluminous sleeves and maxi skirts were key looks of the era, epitomised by designers like Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell. Their detailed embroidery, paisley prints and psychedelic colours perfectly suited the new eclectic androgyny popularised by glam rockers and folk singers.

We were inspired by the arts and crafts movement with the lace, crochet and embroidery elements. Moving away from the glitzy embellishments of earlier decades we embraced the boho vibe by using different textures and more natural fabrics such as lightweight cottons and chiffons
