Anyone with a generous figure wants to find the right knitwear design but too many patterns do not include the appropriate size and if they do, the designs often lack style. Martin addresses these issues on both counts by creating a range of wearable knits that mean whatever you figure shape, you should find something to suit you. Included in his collection are some lovely delicate wraps in soft yarns and pretty shrugs and boleros to wear over summer dresses and tops. There are also longer-line tunics to wear with trousers, and jackets, cardigans and slipovers, as well as a three-quarter length trademark Martin Storey cable coat. And there are a couple of accessories thrown into the mix for good measure.
Elements is a collection of 24 accessories, garments and homeware by Alison Crowther-Smith and Donna Jones. Inspired by the British countryside with beautiful textures and colourwork this elegant collection features designs for all skill levels.
With a 70’s twist the look is relaxed yet confident, comfortable yet elegant. The Collection makes the effortless transition between seasons, the designs move seamlessly from the fading glow of late summer into the welcoming arms of autumn, and all it holds!
Prepare to be captivated…still and enchanting; a haunting beauty appears amid the deep shadows, bringing true radiance and charm. Luxurious fabrics of creamy coloured mohairs, satins and silks contrast with dark brocades and beaded opulence to complete the vision.
