Pippa Middleton in Rowanjoy

There is much excitement with Rowanjoy today as completely out of the blue one of my dresses has appeared across the national and even some world press. I was walking home from doing a bit of extra work on today when I spotted a familiar dress on the cover of the Scotsman newspaper. It was a dress by one of the other Godiva Boutique designers from 7 years ago when we had shown a collection for the Edinburgh University Charity Fashion show and was being modelled by a certain Miss Pippa Middleton. After buying the Scotsman and making an excited call to Fleur the owner of Godiva boutique I realised there was actually a photo of one of my dresses on page 3 as well. Not only is the picture of my dress in the Scotsman it has also been used in The Sun, The Daily Record, The Daily Mirror and The Daily Mail and their online counterparts and online for Us magazine - yes I am tres tres excited.

The 2 models on the left are also in Rowanjoy.

Unfortunately I dont have a credit for making the dress but I am trying to rectify that as we speak. The dress along with 2 other outfits were the first I had shown on the catwalk since my graduation from Edinburgh College of Art the year before and from what I remember was a great show to take part in with John Snow as the compere (wearing one of his trademark ties) I clearly remember discussing the idea of the butterflies in the hair with Fleur and think they may still be hiding down in the Godiva Basement. I think we shall be hunting those out on Monday!

Short and Sweet - Best scottish weddings magazine.

I Excitedly made my way to the newsagent last night to pick up "The Best Scottish Weddings" magazine because Rowanjoy bridal has had its first feature in the press. Betty is featured in its short and sweet photoshoot along with other 1950's inspired gowns and even gets in the magazine twice by sneakily appearing on the contents page. Styled with pink colour pop accessories and shot on location with some fabulous vintage signs and vehicles the flirty vibe of the dress really comes across. The rest of the magazine is filled with ideas and inspiration for your big day and those lovely ladies from Strumpet also have one of their pieces featured in a gorgeous Biba inspired photoshoot.
